CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility
Over the past years, we too have noted a significant increase in the customers’ demand for documented CSR initiatives on our behalf. They want to know that we are a socially responsible company – and they want to be able to tell their customers that we are.
Further, we believe that our ability to attract the right talents depends on our social profile. We use CSR to attract new employees and make ourselves attractive to our current employees. We believe that our CSR involvement to a large extent is becoming a requirement from the new generations. We see a potential in using CSR as an element in our strategy to open new markets. Our investors have a significant interest in knowing that we are a socially responsible company.
The development over the recent years has added CSR as yet another parameter to assess the vitality of a company. We want to stay alert and able to be proactive when it comes to handling potential risks within KP and our supply chain.
We aim to integrate considerations to environment, labor, human rights and anti-corruption into our business and into the relationships we have with our employees and business partners.
We support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and make sure that we are not complicit in human rights abuses.
We uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining; and we support elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor; we abolish the use of child labor and any discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
We support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
We undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
We work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
