Building communities and responsible partnerships

Dialogue with local communities

In all locations where we operate, we have a responsibility to maintain an active and transparent dialogue where we inform the community about our activities and listen to their opinions. We also welcome spontaneous feedback from our neighbours and all sites have channels for communication and grievance mechanisms.

In Höganäs and Halmstad, both located in Sweden, where we have our largest production sites, we inform through our newsletter Insikt (Insight), which is published and distributed on paper 2-3 times per year. In between the printed issues, we continuously update our blog. In the newsletter and on the blog, we invite an open dialogue and encourage our neighbours to share their opinions or questions with us. Good results from open dialogue with neighbours and the local municipality have been achieved in several projects involving local infrastructure. 

Drawing on inspiration from the good examples we already have within the Group, we aim to develop a consistent ‘Höganäs way’ for stakeholder dialogue at all sites.
