Social-standard disclosures (GRI 400)

Boliden generates value by having top-quality operations, processes and products. Employees who are skilled, committed, and who accept personal responsibility are crucial. Boliden must, in turn, offer its employees a safe and inspiring working environ­ment. 
Material stewardship is also of growing importance, since effective use of resources in terms of the reuse and recycling of metals in society is vital for Boliden’s business. By acting responsibly towards neighbours, business partners, and other stakeholders, Boliden can maintain a good reputation as a metals company and employer.
