Our mission to offer modern consumers milk-based food products that create inspiration, confidence and well-being provides a platform for our Corporate Social Responsibility agenda – to engender confidence and security in society over the long term.
”Taking responsibility means taking a stand”
Our objective is to develop our business on a foundation of long-term perspectives with respect for, and in harmony with, our surroundings. Arla Foods employees have a common way of working that is rooted in our values, regardless of where we work within the Arla Foods group. Above all, Arla Foods’ Code of Conduct is a tool for all our employees worldwide which sets out how to act when faced with various dilemmas.
””Being responsible means taking action””
Our Code of Conduct with its eleven areas of responsibilities complements the 10 basic principles of Global Compact. As a participant of Global Compact, we undertake to incorporate this initiative and its principles in our strategy and company culture – and to communicate this commitment to our employees, owners, suppliers, partners, customers and our surrounding world.
”Follow up – an important part of our responsibility”
Yearly CSR report from Arla
Our commitment to Global Compact also means that every year we have to report, in an open and honest way, on how we are adhering to our Code of Conduct. This report, Our Responsibility - CSR report describes the progress we have made over the year and where we see opportunities for improvement. We have chosen to involve a lot of employees in our reporting work to make sure that our view on sustainability reflects all of the work carried out in Arla.
