Sustainable development policy

Sustainability can mean different things to different companies and people. It is therefore important to bring the knowledge that already exists to the fore and to supplement it where there are shortfalls.

Nynas’ sustainability policy shows what we want to do in both the short term and the long term. It also serves as a link with other policies that relate to work on sustainability, for example safety and the code of conduct.

Nynas Sustainable development policy

At Nynas Sustainable Development means developing and implementing strategies that ensure growth of shareholder value while proactively taking care of all stakeholder needs; specifically protecting and sustaining human and natural resources for future generations.
