Community involvement

Sandvik engages in diverse community relation projects worldwide with three primary focus areas: 1) Sustainability Shift: Organizations, projects and activities related to climate change, resources and waste management, or the clean and sustainable development of communities. 2) Digital Shift: Organizations, projects and activities that build technical and digital skills, support innovations that contribute to global advancement, or introduce people to new technologies. 3) Societal Impact: Projects that support equality and inclusion, improve health and well-being, or contribute to positive development in the local communities where we operate.

We view our community involvement projects as investments, for which we require contracts, clear target groups and objectives with measurable results. We have a Community Involvement, Sponsorship and Donations procedure to guide all Sandvik entities engaged in community relations projects. All activities must comply with 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 our 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 promote employee engagement in community initiatives that contribute positively to society. Our community involvement activities will be governed via a digital tool that allows for mapping, tracking and follow-up. The app is in final testing and will be launched broadly across the Group during the first half of 2024.
