Social responsibility

Lappset Group Ltd observes the principles and practices of good corporate citizenship, which are based on the ISO 26000 standard’s guidelines on economic, social and environmental responsibility.

For Lappset Group Ltd, good corporate citizenship means complying with laws, regulations and international conventions and recommendations as well as framework agreements with trade unions and the company’s own procedural guidelines. 

The core areas of responsibility are good corporate governance, human rights, labour market rules, environmental friendliness, fair operating models, consumer rights (such as product safety) and involving the local community and promoting its development.

It is important to note that the ISO 26000 standard does not come with certification the same way as the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 quality and environmental management standards.

We invite everyone to play and keep fit

  • We contribute to the development of society and support the well-being of people of different ages by creating products and solutions that encourage play, physical activity and social interaction.
  • Public playgrounds and exercise areas that are open to everyone create wellbeing regardless of social status.
  • Our mission is to promote the well-being of people of all ages. Several of our products also factor in the needs of people with various kinds of disabilities (Design for All, Inclusive Design).
  • We have been sponsoring recreational activities for children and young people for decades, through local sports clubs, for example. One of our principles is that we donate 1–2% of our operating profit to non-profit causes.
  • We collaborate with national associations that promote the well-being of children and young people.

Participation in community activities and community development

  • We contribute to regional development in collaboration with local, regional and national partners through various organisations.
  • We engage in many different forms of cooperation with universities and other educational institutions, including research, dissertations, lectures, traineeships, visits and tours as well as various collaborative projects relating to product development and service design. We also host an annual local planning competition in cooperation with our customers and grant scholarships to the best master’s thesis on landscape architecture each year.
  • We are a family business committed to a northern operating environment. Our focus is on the long term, which helps to build well-being in our community.
  • We are involved in the international Federation of Playground Industry (FEPI) and contribute to the drafting of standards that promote product safety.

We respect human rights

  • We will do our utmost to prevent the use of child or forced labour in any form within our network. As we operate in the playground and exercise equipment industry, the components for our products are largely manufactured in automated production facilities.
  • We respect the working hours and labour laws and regulations of each country.
  • We require our major suppliers to commit to the UN’s Agenda 2030 recommendations for corporate social responsibility.

Working practices and fair operating methods

  • We ensure the occupational safety of our personnel in accordance with occupational safety and health legislation and the Group’s OSH policy.
  • We monitor occupational safety in our production facilities on a daily basis with the help of the Green Cross monitoring and measuring system. 
  • We have an incentive scheme that covers all personnel groups.
