Recycling

Recycling contributes to the protection of our environment, both by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and cutting the carbon emissions usually caused by general waste disposal. Conexus encourages our staff to play a large part by explaining the benefits of recycling, and we make it clear that everyone’s contributions are important.

Human Rights

Conexus Recovery’s work on human rights is integrated into all our policies that govern sustainability efforts. The ethical guidelines expressed in the sustainability policy provides the foundation for how human rights are to be observed. The diversity policy, personal data policy and the anti-corruption policy provide details in more specific areas. By emphasizing Conexus Recovery’s views on human rights, the company can reduce the risk that violations occur.

Anti Corruption

We have an extensive anti-corruption programme where we have adopted guidelines specifying how the company and our employees are to conduct business in a responsible and ethical manner. Policies and regular training on the ethical guidelines are examples of measures taken to combat all forms of corruption. Other measures include recurring internal audits, in respect of compliance and internal control. The company’s anti-corruption work is instrumental in keeping corruption risk at an absolute minimum. Our Compliance function has been conducting a more extensive audit, regarding the risk of corruption in all business units. The audits primary goal is to identify strengths and weaknesses in the area. Audit results for the past two years show that managers have a healthy understanding of what corruption comprises and the majority are very familiar with the internal rules and are well-trained on the subject. The audit also shows that work should continue with the anti-corruption framework, in order to constantly lower the risk for corruption.
