Shows company's commitment to sustainability.

Ahlstrom Corporation has signed the United Nations Global compact initiative and has been registered as a participant by the United Nations Global Compact Office.

By supporting the initiative, Ahlstrom commits to voluntarily advancing sustainability with its stakeholders. Ahlstrom also wants to send a strong message along the value chain that it is alert to the environmental and social matters and is taking active steps to incorporate them in its strategy and risk management.

Ahlstrom's Code of Conduct and sustainability strategy are well in line with the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact. Ahlstrom applies a three legged approach in the management of sustainability in its value chain: sustainable supply chain of raw materials, ecologically efficient manufacturing and a holistic lifecycle thinking of its products. Economic, social and environmental responsibilities are taken into account in all three areas.

The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
