As the UN Global Compact signatory since 2008, ASSA ABLOY has proven that technology, quality and integrity can co-exist. It means we support and commit ourselves in promoting and respecting the 10 principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. For more than a decade, our operations in over 70 countries worldwide have consistently attained above the initiative's targets, while making headway in innovation, sourcing, production, and employee development.
With particular focuses on six of the Sustainable Development Goals set out in 2015, we reinforce our business strategy and practice with a Supplier Sustainability Audit Program and Sustainability Supply Council. Operational details and measurable improvements are summarised in the Communication on Progress Report, prepared annually for the UN GlobalCompact and public's review.
