We also regularly participate in the RC self-assessment. This allows us to see how we are doing compared to other companies.

The Certified ISO 9001 and 14001 Management Systems work as a good backbone for our responsibility work. They provide us with tools to improve our operations continuously. Today the certificates cover 12 of our sites. Although some of our sites are not yet certified, we follow the same principles in all our operations.
