UNGC Advanced-level reporting

Electrolux endorses the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and its ten principles on the environment, labor practices, human rights and anti-corruption. Electrolux is also a signatory of the UNGC Water Mandate.

This UNGC Communication on Progress is aligned with the UNGC’s Advanced level of reporting. Where applicable, the below table indicates where readers can find examples of how Electrolux meets best practice levels in regards to the criteria for reporting as defined by the UNGC. The left-hand column indicates their information requirements. The areas that are marked in grey text under each criterion are not addressed in the report.

Electrolux reports in accordance with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights reporting framework. A separate index has been created to guide readers to the relevant areas in the report that address human rights. Our work will continue to improve human rights reporting in future reports.

The 2016 Sustainability Report and the 2016 Annual Report reflect our commitment to these principles and the efforts to continuously improve performance. The 2016 Sustainability Report is third party assured. 

​See the enclosed Assurance Statement for information on the scope of assurance.
