We play fair

From experience, we know that diverse teams are more effective. They are more likely to think and act outside the box and contribute to greater creativity and innovation.

We will constantly aim higher in ethics and transparency, being a leader in playing fair and being open.

Making progress

  • In 2020, we launched a global training program in diversity and inclusion in which about 20,000 employees participated.
  • Sandvik supports numerous community programs related to education, innovation and health and encourages all of its employees to participate. Read more about our community involvement
  • We continue to roll out our compliance tool, the Compliance House.

Women in managerial positions

Our target is to increase the share of women in managerial positions to one third by 2030. The graph shows the increase in women in managerial positions for 2016–2020.

The dotted line is an indication of how well we are in line with the 2030 targets, meaning we are below the requirements to achieve the target. We have a plan in place to accelerate the increase of female managers in the years to come, which is necessary to achieve the 2030 goal.
