Orkla is committed to operating in accordance with fundamental ethical values and with respect for individuals, society and the environment. To ensure compliance with this standard in every part of the Group, Orkla emphasises the importance of developing good managers, a strong corporate culture and appropriate management procedures.
In line with Orkla’s multi-local organisational model, each company has an independent responsibility for its own operations, which includes exercising the company’s corporate responsibility. This work takes place within the framework of the Group’s values and general guidelines, and is followed up through internal reporting, internal audits, risk management procedures and the Group’s internal governance structure. Monitoring the companies’ compliance with rules, their corporate responsibility and ethics is also part of the internal audit function.
