Orkla has published its sustainability report for 2011. The report describes the Group's management of risks and opportunities related to the sustainability challenges that particularly affect the business.
In the preface to the report CEO Bjørn M. Wiggen highlights Sapa’s increased capacity for aluminium recycling, Borregaard’s innovation efforts related to second generation biofuels and Orkla Brands’ efforts to reduce the content of salt, fat and additives in foods as good examples of the Group’s sustainability work in 2011.
– Through the development of products and processes related to its companies’ core activities, Orkla is helping to create a more sustainable society, says Wiggen.
The sustainability report provides a detailed account of the work on environment, health and safety (EHS), human and labour rights, responsible sourcing, anti-corruption and other relevant liabilities. Good risk management and continuous improvement in these areas are considered important for the Group’s long-term development and profitable growth. Orkla’s directives on corporate responsibility and business ethics were revised in 2011 to contribute to a further strengthening of the companies’ work.
