About us

What corporate responsibility means to us

At NKT, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) lies at the heart of everything we do and we've been living and breathing our values for many years of good business.

Fair, sustainable – and accountable

We have a written NKT ethics statement and Code of Business Conduct which expresses our Group-wide commitment to these high ethical standards and we regularly report against our CSR measures through our Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). We do this to be completely transparent about the way that we work and add value.

This report includes Key Performance Indicators that include occupational injuries, CO2 emissions, materials utilisation, environmental events and compliance with anti-corrupt behaviour.
