Governance and 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.

The Group Sustainability department, 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 leads a cross-regional sustainability team in which all regional sustainability leads are represented. The team is responsible for leading Gränges’ global sustainability efforts, as well as developing global sustainability plans. Ensuring best practice sharing across the organization is also a key objective for the team.

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.
