Governance

Cary Group places great emphasis on good business ethics and proactive anti-corruption work. Our management team is ultimately responsible for sustainability work, and follow-up, monitoring and decisions on strategic direction and focus areas are made by the Board. Sustainability is a central part of the company’s strategy and a frequently recurring theme at management and Board meetings.

A sustainable supply chain

We take great responsibility to ensure that the products we purchase and sell to our customers are produced, handled and distributed in a sustainable way through the entire supply chain. Based on the UN’s Global Compact principles covering human rights, labour. environment, and anti-corruption, our code of conduct states the guidelines we follow related to suppliers and subcontractors. We are convinced that social and environmental responsibility are a prerequisite for a successful business. A modern Slavery Statement and Code of Conduct is included in each agreement with contracted suppliers to minimize the risk of suppliers violating human rights and anti-corruption, in line with our procurement policy.

Whistleblowing

In 2020, a Whistleblowing policy and an external system (Whistle B) were introduced to encourage employees to report suspected wrongdoing in the workplace. It is important that employees feel that their concerns are taken seriously and are investigated appropriately and that their confidentiality is respected. Employees must feel confident to raise issues without fear of retaliation. We must conduct our business with honesty and integrity and we expect all employees to maintain high standards. The company culture must be characterised by openness and accountability to prevent situations arising where our standards are challenged and to address such situations if they do occur.
