All our employees contribute with their special skills, characteristics, conditions and background to our LKAB. That’s important. Through diversity and an inclusion, we can create more innovative solutions and better, climate-efficient products.
We urge all employees, the general public, partners and suppliers to report suspected misconduct, such as practices and incidents that violate our Code of Conduct, policies, laws, regulations and guidelines.
As an employee with us you should primarily report to your immediate manager, their manager, the HR department or the legal department. External people are encouraged to go via their contact person at LKAB, or the purchasing department, the environmental department, the finance or legal department.
LKAB also provides the whistleblower system SpeakUp, which is an external channel where individuals can anonymously provide information about potentially illegal or unethical misconduct within the company or group.
LKAB condemns all forms of corruption and fraud and demands openness, integrity and honesty throughout our value chain, in all countries.
A high level of trust in us as a company is the basis for a successful business and strengthens our competitiveness. We don’t engage in any business that we can’t openly stand for. Our employees do not take or give compensation in the form of gifts, services, travel or entertainment that makes his or her position questionable.
We work preventively and continuously to combat all forms of corruption, through transparent systems and clear follow-up. We follow the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance and every year we are audited by an external auditor.
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.
