Community relations

SCA strives to be a dedicated partner in the local communities in which we operate.

In accordance with SCA’s guidelines for community involvement, the company prioritizes initiatives with a clear link to SCA’s values, expertise, operations and geographic presence. Much of SCA’s efforts are related to hygiene and health, and are often directed at women and children. No political or religious views may be expressed in association with the company’s activities.

SCA’s initiatives include both large-scale investments and small projects with a local focus. Apart from adding valuable experience and knowledge to SCA, the company’s community efforts add value by boosting employee pride in the Group and strengthening customer loyalty.

In 2015, SCA invested approximately SEK 37m (24) in local projects, corresponding to 0.3% of operating profit. About 400 projects were registered in the company’s web-based collection tool. Most of the projects were related to hygiene and health. Read more in chapter Community relations.
