Management and Governance

Our sustainability journey includes activities on a local, tactical, and strategic level.

On a local level, we ensure compliance with environmental, social, and ethical aspects through our cross-group compliance management programme. During 2020, we have continued the implementation of our internal initiative Safety first, which promotes a safe working environment, healthy workers, and equal treatment of our employees. Read more about Safety first in the Health & safety chapter.

On a tactical level, we integrate the basic compliance mechanisms into our daily operations by setting goals and targets with clear evaluation processes. We also require that all employees have agreed with our Code of Conduct.

On a strategic level, we strive to be an active voice in the public debate about circular economy. Our arguments for a more ambitious legal framework promoting circular economy illustrates our strategic position where we strive to go beyond compliance.

Governance and coordination

To harmonise and benefit from our size, we have established Group Functions to coordinate our sustainability ambitions across the country borders. Each Group Function is responsible for the actualisation and implementation of their own strategic targets and goals in relation to each specific significant topic.

In order to coordinate the governance of Ragn-Sells there is a cross-group organisation in both Group Functions and Functional Domains. Sustainability is part of the S&PA (Sustainability & Public Affair) Group Function. Reporting regarding sustainability performance is done on a monthly basis to the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and on a quarterly basis to the Ragn-Sells Group Board. Our sustainability department is headed by our Sustainability & Public Affairs Director, who has the general responsibility to coordinate the Group’s overall sustainability performance.

The economic planning is performed through the Group strategy, the respective business planning, and budgeting processes. Steering and follow-up is performed in our business units through specific KPI’s and certain targets per country. Deviations from set targets lead to specific action plans that are followed up at the specific business unit level.
