All documents, registers and reports must be transparent, correct and reliable. LKAB also conducts sustainability audits with suppliers in countries and industries with high corruption and sustainability risks, as well as with suppliers we will work with for a long time.

We have a continuous dialogue with the Sami in our surroundings to understand their interests and find ways to work together.
