Sustainability governance The Code of Conduct forms the basis for ASSA ABLOY’s actions and behavior and is at the core of sustainability governance, providing the framework for the Group’s daily operations. It applies globally to everyone acting on behalf of ASSA ABLOY – including third parties. The Code of Conduct covers areas such as environment, consumer interest, equal opportunities and anti-corruption. Acquisitions are important to ASSA ABLOY’s growth strategy. Since 2006, ASSA ABLOY has made 111 acquisitions, and relocation of production is part of creating a greener and more efficient manufacturing structure. ASSA ABLOY does not tolerate bribery and corruption. To further emphasize this position, the Group launched its Anti-corruption compliance program in 2011.
