To be successful we are dependent on the trust we receive from our customers, employees and other stakeholders. To create trust we implement our core values that define the culture at JCE and its holdings. Our core values shall guide us in our daily work and the way we do business.
The values apply as much to JCE as to all the employees within our subsidiaries. Our operating subsidiaries may have further detailed values and policies adapted to their specific situation. In addition, our core values are always on our mind when evaluating new investment opportunities. These are our values:
We shall have an innovative approach to drive change and find new business models
We shall ensure high quality in everything we do and take initiative to drive continuous improvements
We shall understand the customers’ business and requirements, which is a driving force for our development
We shall together create a positive work environment where people can develop and succeed
We shall apply business acumen through strong leadership and clear accountability to drive profitable growth
We shall act as good corporate citizens and enforce zero tolerance of illegal or unethical behaviour
Ownership and Investments
JCE believes that as a long-term and active owner we have the possibility to create value through responsible ownership and investments.
As an owner, JCE acts through the Board of Directors and one of the focus areas is that our holdings shall act as good corporate citizens. For example, through responsible investments JCE can take active investment decisions to exclude investments in companies involved in areas such as weapons, alcohol, tobacco, etc. and include investments that are sustainable such as our venture in Green Circle Bio Energy that was founded in 2006 and sold in 2015.
The JCE policy of responsible ownership and investments is based on the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact. Since our holdings operate as separate entities with own responsibility we expect our holdings to identify, evaluate and address their corporate responsibility relevant to their nature of business and geographic context.
JCE supports and encourage entrepreneurial team spirit and innovative potential. We engage in opportunities that bring us closer to local communities and help a future generation of young entrepreneurs.
