Our way of working

Gränges’ Group Management, which includes the SVP Sustainability, ensures that Gränges’ global sustainability strategy, long-term targets and policies are aligned with the company’s vision and strategy. Group Management also reviews and monitors regional performance against sustainability targets, as well as makes decisions related to global sustainability priorities.

Gränges’ CEO regularly presents global sustainability performance to the Board of Directors, who reviews and monitors performance against the company’s targets. The Board of Directors is the body which approves the company’s global sustainability strategy, long-term targets, and policies, and adopts the annual sustainability report. During 2023, Gränges SVP Sustainability presented the companys’ global sustainability performance twice to the Audit Committé and once to the Board of Directors.

The Group Sustainability function, headed by the SVP Sustainability, is responsible for leading the development and execution of Gränges’ global sustainability strategy and long-term targets as well as issuing sustainability-related policies. Other responsibilities include regular communication and reporting on Gränges’ sustainability performance and progress to internal and external stakeholders as well as coordinating a continuous stakeholder dialogue.

The SVP Sustainability also chairs two cross-regional teams within Sustainability and Source Green & Recycle (SG&R), in which all regional sustainability and SG&R leads are represented. The teams are responsible for leading Gränges’ global sustainability and SG&R efforts, as well as developing global sustainability and SG&R plans. Ensuring best practice sharing across the organization is also a key objective for both of the teams.

The regional Presidents are responsible for developing and executing local sustainability plans and targets, aligned with the global strategy and the local needs. A systematic follow-up of all regions’ sustainability efforts is done through regional semi-annual sustainability boards, which are chaired by SVP Sustainability and represented by the CEO, the CFO and Deputy CEO as well as the regional Presidents.
