Sustainable innovation and sales

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that 100 per cent of its products have third-party verified sustainability information available.

 

 

Comment: In 2021, Gränges Shanghai developed and implemented a local version of Gränges’ life-cycle and carbon footprint assessment tool to enable declarations of environmental impacts on a product level, starting with the products’ carbon footprint. The tool has previously been implemented in Gränges Finspång. This means that in total, 35 per cent of Gränges’ products had verified sustainability information available in 2021. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the corresponding figure was 43 per cent (19).

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Gränges will initially declare the products’ carbon footprint impact but aims to expand the information to cover other environmental impact categories and sustainability aspects. To ensure transparency and credibility, Gränges has engaged the external party IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute to verify the carbon footprint methodology, process, and routines. Verification reports and statement is available here > Details about the methodology and key assumptions can be found in local carbon footprint reports, also available here >

Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Data is not available for 2019 since the project was initiated at the end of the year. Numbers for 2020 do not include Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. 

Products with third-party verified sustainability information is defined as the packed products with third-party verified sustainability information available [tonnes] divided by the total packed products [tonnes]. 

Policies: No group-wide policy available. Local procedure and routine documents available.

Responsible and sustainable sourcing

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that 100 per cent of significant suppliers are committed to Gränges’ Supplier Code of Conduct or equivalent standard.

 





Comment:
 In 2021, 218 suppliers, corresponding to 98 per cent of the total purchase value from significant suppliers, had valid commitments to the Supplier Code of Conduct or had been assessed to have equivalent standards in place which are in line with Gränges’ sustainability requirements. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, this corresponds to 158 suppliers (127) and 98 per cent (97) respectively. In 2021, 33 of Gränges’ significant suppliers had a third-party verified desktop sustainability assessment available. Gränges also conducted 24 on-site supplier audits in 2021, of which 2 suppliers were new. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the number was 17 (5). Supplier audits are conducted periodically depending on suppliers’ strategic importance and results from supplier performance assessments, and they mainly focus on ensuring compliance with Gränges’ quality and delivery requirements. In total, 16 significant suppliers were added to the supplier base in 2021 and will be included in the annual responsible sourcing process from 2022. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy this corresponds to 10 suppliers (4).

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at a regional level by the purchasing organizations and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 do not include Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.

Significant supplier is defined as all metal suppliers (suppliers of primary ingots, purchased slabs, aluminium scrap, alloying elements) as well as other suppliers which have an annual purchase value above SEK 5 million or an equivalent amount in local currencies. Local purchase value has been converted to SEK using average currency rates for 2021.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ Responsible Sourcing Policy which outlines group-wide principles and requirements on responsible sourcing, including signing Gränges’ Supplier Code of Conduct. Four of the company’s production sites are certified in accordance with the quality management standard IATF 16949, which includes criteria on suppliers’ quality performance.

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that at least 30 per cent of total sourced metal inputs is aluminium scrap.

 


 
 

Comment: In 2021, the share of sourced aluminium scrap reached 28.5 per cent. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the share increased by 2.5 percentage points to 25.0 per cent (22.5). The increase was driven by all regions’ increased sourcing of aluminium scrap both through commodity traders as well as through recycling companies and customers.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 do not include Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.

Share of sourced aluminium scrap is defined as sourced aluminium scrap used as input materials [tonnes] divided by total sourced metal input materials [tonnes].

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ EHS Policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees working at Gränges.

Resource-efficient operations

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that energy intensity is reduced by 17 per cent versus baseline 2017, and that the share of renewable energy (electricity, heat, steam, fuels) is at least 20 per cent compared with baseline 2017.

 

 

  


Comment:
 In 2021, total energy use was 1,702.9 GWh. Excluding Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy the energy use had increased by 13 per cent to 1,372.8 GWh (1,220.2), driven by a higher production volume. The energy intensity decreased by 5 per cent to 3.4 MWh/tonne (3.6), also when excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. The decrease was mainly driven by improved energy effeciency per tonne. The share of renewable energy increased by 2 percentage points and reached 15 per cent (13), also when excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. The increase was mainly driven by a a lower share of coal in Gränges Americas’ electricity mix. Gränges Finspång sources specified electricity from 100 per cent hydro power since 2020.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 do not include Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.

Energy intensity is defined as total energy use [MWh] divided by the total packed products [tonnes].

Renewable energy sources are defined as wind, solar, hydro, geothermal, tidal and biomass. The share of renewable energy is calculated as renewable energy sourced including recovered energy [MWh] divided by the total energy used [MWh] using total energy use per source and the supplier-specific mix for delivered electricity, district heating and steam.

Regulations: Gränges adheres to applicable energy regulations in the countries of operations; Gränges’ production site in Shanghai under the Shanghai Energy Conservation Regulations and the sites in Finspång and Konin under the Energy Efficiency Directive. Gränges’ sites in Americas do currently not have any energy related regulations affecting its operations, but is required to control the consumption of energy that produces certain emissions under e.g. the USEPA’s Clean Air Act.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ EHS Policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees working at Gränges. The production sites in Finspång, Shanghai and Saint-Avold are certified in accordance with the energy management standard ISO 50001, while the sites in Americas and Konin are preparing for implementation.

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that carbon emissions intensity from own operations and purchased energy (scope 1+2) is reduced by at least 25 per cent versus baseline 2017 and carbon emissions intensity from sourced metal inputs (scope 3) is reduced by at least 30 per cent versus the 2017 baseline. 

 



 



Comment: In 2021, total carbon emissions intensity (scope 1+2+3) amounted to 9.3 tonnes CO2e/tonne. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the intensity was reduced by 4 per cent to 10.0 tonnes CO2e/tonne (10.4) compared to 2020.

Carbon emissions intensity from own operations and purchased energy (scope 1+2) was 0.88 tonnes CO2e/tonne in 2021. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the intensity was reduced by 11 per cent to 0.73 (0.83) versus 2020 mainly driven by more energy efficient production and a decrease in energy intensity in Gränges Americas and Gränges Asia.

Carbon emissions intensity from sourced metal inputs (scope 3) was 8.4 tonnes CO2e/tonne. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the intensity was reduced by 3 per cent to 9.3 (9.6). The reduction was driven by a higher share of sourced aluminium scrap replacing primary aluminium in Gränges Americas and Gränges Finspång, and by increased sourcing of low-carbon primary aluminium in Finspång. The scope 3 intensity increased slightly in Shanghai because of lower volumes of low-carbon primary aluminium.

In 2021, total greenhouse gas emissions amounted to 4.600 ktonnes CO2e, 4.660 ktonnes CO2e with location-based approach.

Emissions of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide increased in all production facilities compared to 2020 due to higher consumption of natural gas and liquified petroleum gas as a direct result of the increased production 2021.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported with a market- based approach. Data is reported at regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 do not include Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.

Greenhouse gas emissions are presented as carbon dioxide equivalents. In accordance with the GHG Protocol, the definitions of the respective scopes are the following.

Scope 1 is defined as direct emissions from Gränges’ operations, which include production facilities, office buildings and company owned vehicles. Emissions are calculated based on fuel consumption and emission factors.

Scope 2 is defined as energy indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, heat and steam consumed by Gränges, in production facilities and office buildings. Emissions are calculated using specific data from Gränges’ electricity, heat and steam suppliers.

Scope 3 is defined as other indirect emissions. These include emissions from extraction, production and processing of main purchased materials, fuel and energy related activities (not included in scope 1 or scope 2), upstream and downstream goods transportation as well as business travel. Fuel and energy related activities include production of fuels used in Gränges’ operations and in generation of purchased energy. Emissions from producing primary aluminium, purchased slabs and aluminium scrap are based on regional industry averages or supplier data. Emissions from producing fuels are based on regional industry data and emissions from transportation and business travel are based on specific data from Gränges’ transport routes.

Carbon emissions intensity is defined as total emissions of greenhouse gases [tonnes CO2e] divided by the total packed products [tonnes].

Other emissions to air of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and sulphur dioxide are calculated either based on fuel consumption using local emission factors or based on continual measurements. Emissions of oil and VOC are not reported as methods and data collection procedures are currently being harmonized across the organization.

Regulations: Gränges observes all applicable local and international laws and regulations for environmental impact. Emission limits in Europe are based on requirements from the Industry Emissions Directive (IED). Gränges’ production site in Konin is included in EU emissions trading system, EU ETS. Finspång is not included as the site is below the threshold of rated thermal input. In Shanghai, emission limits are linked to Regulations of Shanghai Municipality on the Prevention and Control of Atmospheric Pollution, and in the US the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NA AQS) provides the relevant legal framework. Local authorities continually monitor compliance to ensure that emissions are within limits. Emissions regulated by legislation include nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide and particulate matter. In some regions volatile organic compounds (VOC) and oil emissions are also regulated.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ EHS Policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees working at Gränges. All production sites are certified in accordance with the environmental management standard ISO 14001, where the Newport site achieved certification in January 2022. Emissions are monitored and managed as part of daily operations. Compliance is a prerequisite for Gränges’ continued license to operate.

Long-term target: Gränges has not yet set a long-term target for waste management. 

Comment: In 2021, Gränges included waste as a material topic in the company’s sustainability framework as a result from stakeholder dialogues. Gränges aims to reduce waste in all operations with the ambition to recycle and reuse waste in production where possible. Waste management is handled locally, and all sites have a local waste handling procedure. All Gränges’ production sites are required to annually report waste data to local authorities. 

Reporting principles and definitions: Data on waste is not reported in 2021 as methods and data collection procedures need to be harmonized across the organization. Starting from 2022, Gränges aims to report on the total amount of waste, split by hazardous and non-hazardous waste. 

Regulations: Gränges adheres to applicable waste regulations in the countries of operations; Gränges facility in Shanghai under the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Solid Waste (2020 Reversion), Gränges Konin under the Environmental protection law, Gränges Americas under the USEPA’s Solid Waste Disposal Act and ensuing amendments and Gränges’ site in Finspång under Avfallsförordningen (2020:614). 

Policies: The governing policy is the EHS policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees working at Gränges. All sites have local waste handling procedures. 

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that all sites have implemented a local water management plan.

 




Comment: 
In 2021, the total water withdrawal was 4,176 m3. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy the withdrawal increased by 31 per cent to 3,755 m3 (2,864). The increase was primarily due to higher production volumes in all facilities which led to an increased need for cooling water. The water intensity ended at 8.5 m3/ tonne. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the water intensity increased by 10 per cent to 9,4 m3/tonne driven primarily by Gränges Finspång. The site had a significantly higher production volumes and water use compared to 2020. The largest impact came from the re-melting plant which is the largest consumer of water. At the end of 2021, Gränges had implemented local water management plans in three sites: Finspång, Shanghai and Newport. The site in Newport was certified in accordance with Alliance for Water Stewardship’s (AWS) International Waters Stewardship Standards during the year.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 do not include Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy.

Water withdrawal is defined as water used in the production facility withdrawn from wetlands, rivers, lakes, own wells, municipal water suppliers or from other public or private water utilities [m3].

Water stress is defined as the ratio of total water withdrawals to available renewable surface and groundwater supplies. The definition is based on Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas developed by World Resources Institute, where the result for the indicator “Baseline water stress” is high (40–80 per cent) or extremely high (> 80 per cent) in the area.

Water intensity is defined as total water withdrawal [m3] divided by the total packed products [tonnes].

Regulations: The water use and management for Gränges’ site in Shanghai is regulated via permits and by legislation such as Water Pollution Prevention and Control Law of the People’s Republic of China, Water Law of the People’s Republic of China, and Management in Shanghai Drainage Ordinance. Gränges Americas is regulated under the USEPA’s Clean Water Act.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ EHS Policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees working at Gränges.

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that Total Recordable Rate (TRR) is < 3.0 recordable accidents per million hours worked and that Severity Rate is < 50 lost workdays per million hours worked.




Comment: In 2021, Total Recordable Rate (TRR) was 6.5. Excluding Gränges Konin, TRR increased to 6.9 (5.5) as a result of COVID-19 related impacts in the production sites in Finspång and Salisbury. The facility in Salisbury had to re-hire many new employees after it was closed for several months in 2020 and the facility in Finspång was affected by restrictions to interact with operators, which had negative effects on safety statistics. In 2021, Severity Rate reached 139. Excluding Gränges Konin, the rate was reduced by 7 per cent to 101 (109). During 2021, there were 35 recordable workplace accidents, of which 6 were defined as serious. 

Reporting principles and definitions: All incidents and accidents are registered and categorized in local incident reporting systems. Events reported are tracked weekly and monthly. Data is reported at regional level and consolidated monthly at group level using common definitions and principles. Data includes contracted workers and is based on total working hours 1 January–31 December. Data for employees covered by OHS management systems and internal safety assessments is based on headcount on 31 December. Data for Gränges Powder Metallurgy is not included in 2021 figures. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. 

Contracted worker is defined as individuals working on-site or off-site on behalf of Gränges.

Recordable accident is defined as either a medical treatment case, a restricted work case or a lost workday case.

Total Recordable Rate (TRR) is defined as total number of recordable accidents per million hours worked.

Lost workday cases is defined as an accident resulting in absence from work. 

Lost workdays are defined as the total number of workdays accumulated by employees being absent from work due to work-related accidents.

Severity Rate is defined as total number of lost workdays per million hours worked.

Serious injury is defined as an irreversible injury such as an amputated finger or lost eyesight, or a reversible injury causing prolonged periods of pain or suffering for the employee, or an accident with an absence longer than 15 days.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ EHS Policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees and individuals who are directly or indirectly related to Gränges’ operations, such as independent contractors and consultants who work on behalf of Gränges. Contracted workers are covered by all safety processes, and where applicable in the efforts to identify and evaluate work related hazards and risks. Moreover, contracted workers are covered by Gränges’ safety training, depending on the type of tasks.

OHS management systems: All Gränges’ production sites, covering 99 per cent of Gränges’ total employees in 2021, had an occupational health and safety (OHS) management system in place, implemented in line with applicable legislation. The OHS management system also covers contracted workers. In the Shanghai site, the OHS system is certified in accordance with ISO 45001, covering 19 per cent of all Gränges’ employees. The sites in Americas and Finspång have initiated pre-studies to implement OHS management systems in accordance with ISO 45001. The site in Konin is planning for certification in 2022.

Internal safety assessments: Gränges generally conducts cross assessments every six months at the sites. Due to the COVID-19 situation, only one assessment was conducted in 2021 at the Konin site, covering in total 31 per cent of total employees. The site in Finspång was assessed in 2020 and the remaining sites were assessed in 2018–2019.

Safety committees: Gränges has employee-managed safety committees at all plants which consult on the working environment and work for increased safety. Issues addressed include occupational health care, identifying and evaluating hazards, as well as follow-up of corrective actions to eliminate risks. The efficiency of the committees is monitored by the Supervisory safety committees, headed by the regional Presidents. Contracted workers are not represented in the safety committees. In Gränges Americas’, each plant has an employee-managed safety committee supported by local management. Input and questions from contracted workers are captured in recurrent meetings. Monthly safety meetings are held in each facility and in Newport the aim is to meet twice a month starting in 2022. In Shanghai, safety committee meetings are conducted quarterly, in Finspång two to four times per year and in Gränges Konin meetings are held each month. Contracted workers do not participate in the meetings but are treated in the same way as Gränges’ employees when it comes to OHS.

Diverse and high-performing teams

Long-term target: Not applicable as this is a general disclosure.


Comment: In 2021, the total number of employees was 2,712. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the total number of employees was 1,830 (1,774). The increase was mainly driven by a high recruitment rate in Finspång and Gränges Americas due to increased production. The total number of contracted workers was 108.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at a regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges AB and Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Data is based on headcount on 31 December.

Contracted worker is defined as individuals working on-site of off-site on behalf of Gränges.

Permanent contract is defined as a contract for an indeterminate period.

Temporary contract is defined as a contract of limited duration.

Full-time employee is defined according to national legislation and practice regarding working time, such as employees working a minimum of nine months per year and 30 hours per week.

Part-time employee is defined as employees working less than a full-time employee.

Policies: Not applicable as this is a general disclosure.

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that 100 per cent of all employees annually have a performance and development discussion.

 

Comment: In 2021, 67 per cent of Gränges’ employees received a performance and development discussion. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the performance was 100 per cent (100). Gränges Konin is in the process of implementing a structured approach to conduct performance and development discussions that will be in effect starting from 2022. During the year, the average training hours was 5,5 hours per employee.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at a regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges AB and Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Data covers employees in duty adjusted for those who are long-term absent as well as new employees who did not have a performance and development discussion as they started their employment after the period when the annual performance and development discussions were conducted. Training data is based on average number of employees and the scope is limited to trainings conducted by or together with an external party as well as the group-wide Code of Conduct, anti-corruption and IT security trainings.

Policies: No group-wide policy available.

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that at least 30 per cent of senior management are women.

 


Comment: In 2021, the share of women in Gränges’ total workforce was 13 per cent. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the share of women was 15 per cent (15). The share of women among senior management was 18 per cent, or 21 per cent (21) excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Gränges sees clear challenges to improve the gender balance including a high turnover rate in some regions because of stronger employment markets, operating in rural areas where it is difficult to find the right competence, as well as operating in countries where gender roles are traditional. With that said, Gränges works to improve the gender balance both in the total workforce and among senior management.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at a regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges AB and Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Data is based on headcount on 31 December.

Senior management is defined as employees eligible to participate in Gränges’ long-term incentive (LTI) programme.

Policies: The governing policy is the Diversity Policy, which is reviewed annually and applies to all employees working at Gränges.

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that Employee engagement index should reach at least 85. 

Comment: In 2021, the total sick-leave was 3.7 per cent, with COVID- 19 still being a driving force for the increase in long-term sickness cases. In 2021, the total employee turnover was 18.7 per cent. Excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy, the employee turnover was 22.6 per cent (16.0). One of the main reasons for the high turnover rate was a stronger employment market compared to last year. The high turnover rate could mainly be seen in Gränges Americas where COVID-19 had a vast impact on the American worforce including early retirements as well as a more competitve market to attract and retain employees. By gender, employee turnover was 18.3 per cent among men and 21.9 per cent among women and by category 21.4 per cent among blue-collar employees and 11.2 per cent among white-collar employees. Since the employee survey is conducted every second yearand not in 2021, there was no result for Employee engagement index.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data is reported at a regional level and consolidated annually at group level using common definitions and principles. Data for Gränges AB and Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. Numbers for 2019 and 2020 exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Data for sick-leave and employee turnover is based on average number of employees (expressed as present full-time positions). Data for employee engagement comes from Gränges’ employee survey, which is conducted every other year. Contracted workers are not included in these key performance indicators.

Sick-leave is defined as all absent hours for sickness within a year divided by total annual working hours (as applicable in local standards). Excludes permitted leave absences such as holidays, study and parental leave.

Employee turnover is defined as number of employees who leave the organization (voluntarily or due to dismissal, retirement, or death in service) during the reporting period divided by the total average number of employees converted to full-time positions.

Employee engagement index is a calculated mean from a number of questions in Gränges’ employee survey related to energy and clarity, two important dimensions of employee engagement. The mean is converted to an index 0–100.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ Code of Conduct which is updated annually and applicable for all employees and board members in entities owned by Gränges.

Ethical business practices

Long-term target: Gränges’ 2025 target is that 100 per cent of all employees are annually trained in the Code of Conduct, and that 100 per cent of all white-collar employees are annually trained in anti-corruption.

 

Comment: In 2021, Gränges continued to conduct its annual group-wide Code of Conduct and anti-corruption trainings. All employees who had access to computers conducted the group-wide e-learning Code of Conduct training, whereas blue-collar employees in Gränges Americas and Gränges Konin conducted classroom training or individual training, depending on COVID-19 restrictions. Total training participation ended at 100 per cent (100), also excluding Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Gränges also conducted the annual anti-corruption e-learning training which 100 per cent (100) of all white-collar employees conducted. No confirmed corruption incidents were detected during 2021.

Reporting principles and definitions: Data for Code of Conduct and anti-corruption training participation is collected and consolidated annually via the e-learning system used for online training. Data for Gränges AB and Gränges Powder Metallurgy is included in the data for Gränges Eurasia. 2020 and 2019 numbers exclude Gränges Konin and Gränges Powder Metallurgy. Data includes employees in duty and is adjusted for long-term sick-leave, parental leave, resignations and employees off duty for a longer period. The anti-corruption training was conducted in October 2021 while the Code of Conduct training was conducted October 2021 to January 2022, slightly delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Policies: The governing policy is Gränges’ Code of Conduct which is updated annually and applicable for all employees and board members in entities owned by Gränges. It also applies to independent contractors and consultants or others acting on behalf of Gränges. Also, Gränges’ Anti-Corruption Policy defines, explains, and expands on what Gränges means by corruption.
