Code of ethics

Our code of ethics guides us in how we should act to be a good employer and a long-term attractive and credible business partner.

We have chosen to establish our own code of ethics to meet the requirements of the market, strengthen the internal culture, enable good risk management, strengthen our brand and thereby increase our ability to do business with high standards.
