Ahlstrom-Munksjö joining the UN Global Compact

In November 2017, Jan Åström, President and CEO, signed the United Nations Global Compact's ten principles for ethical business practices.

The company is now among nearly 10,000 companies world-wide that have affirmed their dedication to respecting human rights, labour rights, environmental quality, and anti-corruption practices.

''At Ahlstrom-Munksjö, we are dedicated to sustainability and responsibility from the highest levels of leadership to the most local concern in our supply chains or at our production sites,'' said Åström. ''By joining the UN Global Compact, we continue to affirm our commitment to ethical and responsible business practices in every area of our work.''

Joining the UN Global Compact is an important step forward in the company's sustainability journey, as it reflects Ahlstrom-Munksjö's enduring values and commitment to responsible business practices.

The company is expected to complete the process of joining the UN Global Compact within the next weeks. Once the company is a full member, we will report on our progress and activities in these ten areas each year.
