AS3 has signed the United Nations Global Compact, which is the world's largest voluntary network for businesses and organisations desiring an active formalisation of their social responsibility.
AFFILIATION WITH THE GLOBAL COMPACT
Since AS3 was founded in 1989, our work has been based on respect for people and the environment. When we joined the United Nations Global Compact in 2011, this was formalised in a more global framework.
There are ten principles in the Global Compact initiative, which include human and worker rights, as well as the environment and anti-corruption. We commit to working with these principles within the context that makes sense for our company, and these principles are central to AS3's initiatives.
Responsibility and results
By signing the UN Global Compact, we commit to report on the ways in which our organisation is socially responsible. The purpose of this report is to provide our customers, employees and other interested parties with an insight into how AS3 works with CSR and into which ambitions we have to help make a difference.
The principles are rooted in the entire company. Therefore, we have prepared a Nordic responsibility code for our company - AS3's Code of Conduct.Commitment of the board
