Our sustainability framework

The Lindéngruppen Sustainability Framework raises awareness about the impacts our businesses have and makes it easier to track progress on how we are addressing them.

Our framework encourages high standards across our businesses and helps them integrate human rights, labour, ethics, supply chain and environmental priorities into their operations and product development.

Each leadership team uses the framework to set the priorities that are most relevant to its business, and regularly reports progress to its board using the framework as a basis for discussion. Based on these reports, each board sets or adjusts its own strategies.

Lindéngruppen’s board reviews the framework and the progress made by all of the businesses on an annual basis.

In 2017 we updated the framework to reinforce our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), align with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and meet the new EU directive on sustainability reporting.
