For a safer, more sustainable world
VIKING makes a positive contribution to society at large, reflecting our size and significance as a global manufacturer and service provider of safety equipment. We recognize that our activities affect the development of society and the environment around us. And we play an active role in improving social and environmental conditions wherever there is a natural link to our business, both in our immediate vicinity and internationally. We believe that socially and environmentally sustainable solutions bring long-term advantages and for this reason, CSR initiatives are an integrated part of our business processes.
Our CSR strategy is inspired and guided by the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact in the fields of human rights, labor rights, the environment and anti-corruption and by the UNs Sustainable Development Goals. The structure of our CSR reports is influenced by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Framework.
Raising the standards
At the heart of VIKING lies an important mission: An unrelenting quest to protect and save human lives all over the world. Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities reflect our mission and ongoing commitment to raising safety standards. We see our participation in these activities as a chance to encourage and contribute to responsible, ethical behavior throughout the industry by strengthening relationships with suppliers, customers, authorities and partners.
