Ethics and compliance

At Cargotec, we realise that successful and sustainable business is not only about what we do but also about how we do things. Our Code of Conduct sets the overall principles for how we act in relation towards the environment and society and for how we conduct business in an ethical and responsible way. For us it is important that the principles in the Code of Conduct is implemented and complied with in practice - that we and anyone acting on our behalf live our code of conduct. The practical implementation of our Code of Conduct is guided by our Ethics and compliance framework.

Cargotec does business on a global scale, with sales to over 170 countries and own offices in some 50 countries. Our industry has its fare share of compliance challenges for example relating to doing business in remote locations, bidding for large projects for customers which are governmentally owned as well as the use of sales intermediaries in countries where we do not have our own sales offices. But we want to see these challenges as opportunities, by focusing on ethics and compliance we want to ensure that we can do long-term, sustainable and profitable business and be a trusted company. We want our employees, customers, shareholders and other stakeholders to consider us as a responsible, safe and transparent company.
