Sekab’s operations have an impact on people and the environment throughout the entire value chain from raw materials and production, to distribution and end use. We carry out our operations in a long-term and responsible manner. Together with our customers, suppliers and other players, we focus on the issues and areas where the effect is greatest and where we can have the greatest impact. Our four focus areas are our co-workers, our business, climate and energy and social responsibility.
At Sekab, we follow the national legislation and guidelines that constitute governing documents in the area of sustainability. Our overall corporate policy is an integrated environmental, safety and work environment policy. Our Code of Conduct provides the guidelines for how Sekab shall act as an employer. We are certified according to the environmental standard ISO 14001 and we work in accordance with the quality standard ISO 9001.
Attracting, recruiting, retaining and developing the skills of our co-workers are all important success factors for Sekab. Together, we want to build a company that is characterised by a safe working environment, good skills development opportunities and gender equality and diversity, as well as good leadership and employeeship. We work actively to ensure that all our co-workers are satisfied, develop their skills and feel motivated to go to work.
We work actively to ensure a sustainable value chain, from supplier to customer, in which risks are managed and irregularities are prevented. Zero tolerance applies to bribery, corruption and other anti-competitive activities. Good business ethics and transparency permeate everything we do and through clarity in our commitments and requirements towards our suppliers, we ensure that we carry out responsible business activities.
Our environmental work is integrated throughout our operations. We are certified according to ISO 14001 and parts of our production are certified according to the ISCC sustainability system. In this way, we have control over the development of our environmental work.
The world’s population is growing, but its assets are not growing to match this – instead they are decreasing. That’s why we do what we do; we provide industry and the society with long-term sustainable chemical products and biofuels. The result of our work has a direct impact on our future and in one way or another we are all affected.
