Overall responsibility for CR lies with our Board of Management; it discusses and decides on important CR matters. The Chief Human Resources Officer decides which CR matters are to be classed as important and represents them on the Board of Management. The Group Corporate Responsibility (GCR) unit reports to the Human Resources (HR) Board department. It develops Group-wide policies and guidelines with the goal of advancing the corporate culture with a focus on sustainable innovation and social responsibility. GCR specifies a strategic framework for the activities of our international network of CR managers through our CR Policy.
GCR is advised by the CR Board, composed of the heads of key Group areas, in order to ensure direct feedback is always shared between CR and our core business.
Another pillar of our CR governance structure is the HR Leadership Team (HR LT), an advisory and decision-making body for the Human Resources (HR) Board department. Among other things, it provides support on decisions regarding positioning of CR issues and the strategic alignment of the CR department.
The CR managers from the different business units and national companies are responsible for implementing our CR strategy. They collaborate within the international CR Manager Network, where they coordinate their activities and share best practices.
