Human rights

SCA shall be a credible and responsible company in all our actions.

Human rights is one important aspect of SCA's Code of Conduct. SCA does not tolerate child labor in its own facilities or the operations of any business partner. The Group complies with applicable national laws and international standards on minimum age wherever the company operates. Nor does SCA tolerate any form of forced labor or abuse of staff. Fair working conditions, health and safety, and respect for the trade union rights of employees and the right to collective bargaining are taken as given.

All forms of violations of human rights are taken very seriously. These are reported and managed in the same way as other breaches of the company Code of Conduct.
