Community involvement

Sandvik is involved in a wide variety of community relations projects around the world. Our platform for sponsorship and community involvement projects comprises four areas: Innovation – projects with a clear link to our daily work, products and solutions, Education and Skills – projects that demonstrate our role as an employer and provide long-term employer branding value, Health and Safety – projects contributing to improved health and safety in society, and Local Enabler – projects creating joint value for our stakeholders and our employees.

We view our community projects as investments, for which we require contracts, clear target groups and objectives with measurable results. All activities must conform to our Code of Conduct, which means that we do not engage in any activities of a political or religious nature, or in projects that may be viewed as hazardous to health or the environment. All of our project partners must sign the Sandvik Supplier Code of Conduct and undergo the same screening process as our suppliers. As part of our 2030 Sustainability goals, we encourage our sites to be engaged in community activities with a positive impact on society.
