Diversity & Inclusion

Integral to our culture

Diversity & inclusion is our everyday reality. We respect and encourage uniqueness and potential regardless of your race, gender, culture, sexual orientation or disability.

Diversity in everyday life

We promote diversity & inclusion through our culture, our work in society and with innovation.



We build an inclusive culture leveraging the differences of our employees



We're inclusive in the way we act and engage with society and stakeholders



We think about the needs of diverse consumers and customers when we make and distribute our products

We recruit people who respect our values, we provide equal opportunities for all, and we protect everyone's privacy. We do not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination. Our aim is to create workplaces where everyone feels included and able to bring their whole selves to work. This commitment starts at recruitment and continues to the end of the working relationship. Each of our markets has a diversity & inclusion action plan designed to provide equal opportunities for everyone to contribute, grow and feel valued.
