Sustainability governance

The Sandvik Board of Directors has the overall responsibility for sustainability within Sandvik, monitored by the Audit Committee.

The Group Executive Management has the overall responsibility for Sandvik’s sustainability strategy and agenda while the business areas and divisions are responsible for the implementation and follow-up. The business areas are also responsible for the assessment and management of sustainability risks in their operations. KPIs are consolidated and reported to follow up on goals at Group and business area levels.

The Legal function is responsible for the coordination within the Group and the Sustainable Business function coordinates the sustainability agenda together with the business areas. The Sustainability Council is a forum for cooperation and best practice sharing across Sandvik. The Council comprises representatives from the business areas and Group functions.
