Contributing to Resilient and Safe Societies
A commitment to the needs of society has always been at the core of Saab's business. In recent years, our open society has been tested and our customers' environments are constantly changing. We deliver capabilities to customers who have the great responsibility of protecting their countries’ values and borders, whilst defending peoples' human rights and freedom.
Under the auspices of the UN, the global community has set out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the world to attain. Peace, security and stability are important prerequisites for achieving sustainable development, as clarified by SDG 16 – Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
Saab is working actively to counter corruption as well as to minimise the risk of violations of human rights within and outside our supply chain. Saab's innovative, resource-efficient products and services help ensure the security and sovereignty of societies every day. The important security and geopolitical dimensions of climate change only further underline the importance of our work.
By acting responsibly in everything Saab does, following laws and regulations and working closely with national authorities, the company earns the confidence of customers, employees and society. The areas of anti-corruption, export control and information security are critical to Saab. The company therefore works continuously to develop better routines and processes. Here too, the goal is to have industry-leading compliance programmes. Read more about compliance at Saab in our Sustainability Report.
Corruption has negative consequences for society and business and is something Saab will never accept. We are guided by our fundamental values, the Code of Conduct, laws, industry codes of conduct and clearly defined internal processes to prevent corruption risks.
