People and communities
We will work to protect and advance people, enabling diversity, equity and inclusion in our business, human rights in our value chain and resilient communities where we work.
As we advance the world through engineering, we aim to have a positive impact on society, including people and communities throughout our value chain.
Our people are at the very heart of our purpose and Sandvik aims to develop a culture that realizes the full potential of our people. We are focused on creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, where innovation and new perspectives can thrive. We support all employees through quickly identifying their talents and providing the right tools for equitable personal growth and career development in a learning culture, so together we can make an impact.
Goal of zero harm
We work to consistently improve our safety culture and to encourage the wellbeing of all our employees. Health and safety is rigorously monitored across our operations and we continuously invest in our safety culture and our goal of zero harm.
Health and safety is a priority in our product development to help create safer working environments. Through our Supplier Code of Conduct, we require our suppliers to ensure the safety of their employees.
We are committed to promoting decent work in our value chain, to contribute to improving lives. This includes respecting human rights, zero tolerance for forced labour, elimination of child labour and upholding workers’ rights. We are continuously strengthening our due diligence and remediation processes in human rights, and we will take swift action when required.
Our engagement with communities local to Sandvik’s operations is based on our commitment to using our passion and expertise to solve challenges and build skills for the jobs of the future. Our approach is tailored country by country. Across all our communities, our aim is to actively participate through partnerships, education and volunteering to bring our values to life.
