Value-based culture

Through the force of the forest, SCA contributes toward a sustainable future. The Group target 2030: All employees comply with SCA's Code of Conduct.

SCA is a credible and responsible company with a value-based culture that is an integrated part of the way we address people, conduct business and operate throughout the entire value chain. SCA is a trustworthy company with a high level of integrity both among employees and with suppliers.

SCA's Code of Conduct is the framework that helps us translate our values into actions. Efforts to promote sound business practices, good working conditions and well-being all originate from the Code, but this is not where they end. To follow through on these efforts, we analyze risks, train employees, and evaluate our own plants and those of our suppliers.

SCA drew up a Code of Conduct in 2004 to ensure that SCA's employees comply with the Group's core values and do not take part in unethical activities. It contains principles that include business ethics, relationships to employees, health and safety, respect for human rights and the environment. The Code is a tool to transform SCA's core values – of responsibility, excellence, and respect – into action.


Through the force of the forest, SCA contributes toward a sustainable future. This is achieved with responsible forest management, resource efficiency and renewable products.

Core Values


We have a responsibility to nature, each other and future generations. We are also responsible for ensuring that we all feel safe and secure at work and that we are given opportunities to develop. When we assume responsibility, learn more and have fun, we do a better job.


We always strive to exceed expectations, by improving ourselves, our products and our services in order to create a sustainably profitable and renewable future.


Respect for our colleagues, customers and business partners is a given. Treating people as equals and showing mutual respect fosters cooperation and allows us to develop – as people and as a company.
