We set the bar high - also when it comes to responsible business management.
A responsibility that begins already in our development processes and continues through the value chain, our production methods, sales procedures and all the way until our products are used by the end user.
HORN joined the UN Global Compact in 2016. A membership of Global Compact is based on 10 principles for human rights, labor rights, environment and anti-corruption.
HORN is committed to make the 10 principles part of their business activities and report on efforts taken through an annual Communication on Progress.
To HORN, sustainable development is more than philanthropy. It is a long term investment, that simply fits todays market.
We therefore constantly strive to improve the approach to our business and continuously acquire knowledge and know-how. We have skilled knowledge partners and use them both in our strategic work and in the daily operation of our CSR initiatives. To be prepared to accommodate future requirements, we have asked their Director of Strategy and Business Development, Loa Dalgaard Worm to explain the increasing importance of sustainable transitions and which factors we, as both consumers and as a company, must be aware of.
1. Show third party certification that verifies sustainable initiatives
2. Look into top 3 company priorities regarding sustainability
3. Be proud of being part of a company that takes responsibility.
A Whistleblower scheme provides security
Even companies with the best intentions can make mistakes. And when that happens, it's important to have a system in place that ensure we are able to fix the damage. Therefore, we have established a whistleblower scheme, which can be used by anyone connected to HORN. If you suspect that something illegally is going on, or if you experience other matters of a serious nature, we encourage you to report it here.
The scheme is established under the Whistleblower Protection Act.
