Fibertex Corporate Responsibility Policy


Fibertex Nonwovens intends to always act in socially responsible manner in the countries in which the Group operates. This entails that, as a minimum, all companies of the Group must comply with local legislation and obtain the permissions required to lawfully operate the business. The individual companies of the Group have therefore procedures in place to ensure compliance with this mandatory requirement. 

 



Moreover, Fibertex Nonwovens generally respects the UN Global Compact's ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption. However, Fibertex Nonwovens has not formally joined the compact at present.



It is important to Fibertex Nonwovens that the Group's companies endeavour to comply with the principles on human rights, labour standards and anti-corruption and that they make sure all business partners and suppliers appointed live up to acceptable standards.  

Fibertex Nonwovens generally intends for the Group's companies to maintain high standards when it comes to ensuring environmental conditions and limiting environmental risks. In addition, the Group addresses environmental conditions from a business criteria aspect with due consideration for the long-term perspectives and the Group's good reputation.  

 



Fibertex Nonwovens will promote a diverse workplace. We will ensure that our employees can use and develop their skills in the best possible way regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, political opinion, age, disability, sexual orientation etc. Further, we will work to increase the number of the underrepresented gender in our management by creating equal opportunities for all.
