Kalmar is committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact, OECD’s guidelines for multinational enterprises, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

These commitments are reflected in the Kalmar Code of Conduct, which describes the general requirements, guidelines, and ethical principles and defines our way of working. The practical implementation of the Code of Conduct is ensured through policies such as our sustainability policy, and through processes and training.

Kalmar’s Board of Directors (BoD) has the overall responsibility for non-financial matters, such as confirming the company’s management approach to sustainability, approving related long-term targets, and monitoring progress towards the targets.

Kalmar’s BoD's Audit and Risk Management Committee (ARC) is responsible for monitoring the company’s financial and non-financial statements. The committee evaluates the adequacy and appropriateness of the company’s internal audit and risk management processes, including sustainability-related risks.

The Kalmar Leadership Team (KLT) is responsible for the implementation of business plans and targets set by the BoD. The KLT reviews and approves the company’s sustainability-related policies and targets, and decides on related resourcing and actions.

Kalmar’s Sustainability Management Team manages, coordinates and executes the company’s sustainability targets on an operational level. The team drives cross-company collaboration and reviews action plans, resource allocation and improvement areas.
