Policies and sustainability governance

When it comes to sustainability governance, PostNord must observe The Swedish State's ownership policy and guidelines for State-owned companies and the Danish State's ownership principles. These include pursuing a carefully considered and well-established policy, strategy and established strategic targets for sustainable value creation.

External regulations

PostNord’s sustainability efforts are guided by external regulations:

  • OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
  • UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
  • UN Global Compact

The Global Compact is, in turn, based on the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the UN Convention against Corruption. These regulations are reflected in PostNord's Code of Conduct.

Code of Conduct

PostNord’s Code of Conduct has been adopted by the Board of Directors and is the Group’s primary governing document.

It covers the areas of business ethics, employees and working conditions, business partners, coordinated purchasing, community engagement and sponsorship programs, and the environment.

The Code applies to all PostNord employees and there is a separate code of conduct for suppliers.

Other internal policies

In addition to the PostNord Code of Conduct, the following policies govern PostNord’s sustainability efforts:

  • Tax policy
  • Disclosure and Insider Trading Policy
  • Information Security Policy
  • Diversity Policy
  • Health and Safety at Work Policy
  • Anti-corruption Policy
  • Climate Policy
  • Procurement Policy

Group Compliance is responsible for the annual review and follow-up of compliance with Group-wide policy documents.
