As a starting point for the group's engagement in the area of sustainable development, sustainable value creation and corporate social responsibility, Schibsted supports the UN's policy initiative for business, Global Compact. Global Compact promotes ten principles in the areas of human rights, standards in working life, environment and anti-corruption. Schibsted has also committed itself to comply with the OECD’s guidelines for multi-national companies which contain voluntary principles covering a variety of issues affecting companies’ social responsibilities.
Sustainable value creation means that Schibsted and its subsidiaries will create economic, environmental and social assets in a sustainable way. The companies' interests must also be promoted in a responsible way. Several group subsidiary companies are involved in social responsibility initiatives closely associated with their own operations.
