E-learning on anti-corruption AAK has signed the UN Global Compact committing the company to establish anti-corruption measures. Anti-corruption is also addressed in the Code of Conduct, the Supplier Code of Conduct and the Code of Conduct for Agents and Distributors. However, corruption still remains a common risk throughout the world for all companies, and a decision was made to internally promote awareness and knowledge of this topic. To that end, e-learning modules addressing anti-corruption topics have been launched. The modules have a length of ap- Labour rights issues are governed by AAK’s CSR Policy, which applies to all Group sites. Among other things, the policy states AAK’s view on child labour and young workers, on forced labour, and on freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining. 38 percent of AAK’s employees are covered by collective bargaining agreements. In 2015 there were no strikes at AAK sites but in Montevideo, Uruguay, production was closed down due to local union meetings, leading to four days of lost production. AAK does not have a Group policy that stipulates a common, cross-group notice period for significant operational changes. Instead, we abide by national legislation and local agreements based on collective bargaining, combined with proximately 15 minutes and end with a multiple-choice test. For employees at increased risk of encountering corruption, these modules are mandatory and must be passed. The first module, with a general introduction to anti-corruption, was launched in early 2014. The second module, with a focus on competition law, was launched late 2014. The purpose of the training modules is to ensure awareness of what is corruption and provide knowledge about how to deal with it. Both modules were passed by all target group members by the end of 2015. Labour rights that which is outlined in the CSR Policy: “We give fair notice to employees of significant changes that could substantially affect them.” Giving staff equal and fair treatment is another focus area of the CSR Policy. During 2015, no incident of discrimination was recorded. The ratio of basic salary for men relative to women is not reported, since interpretation of the data would not give a true picture. On average, AAK pays more in salary to male employees than to female employees, not because the basic salary for male employees is higher, but because male employees generally have jobs with a higher salary. For the same job, the salary for male and female employees is the same.
