Code of conduct

B3's Code of Conduct is a set of guidelines that applies to all employees and subsidiaries within the B3 Group. The Code of Conduct exists to provide a common perspective on work environment, environmental issues, equality, and CSR, as well as how we should interact with each other and our customers.


The ambition of B3 Consulting Group AB is to create added value for employees, customers, suppliers, and shareholders while contributing to sustainable societal development. With operations built on good business ethics, social and environmental responsibility, B3 strives to build long-term relationships characterized by mutual trust. The Code of Conduct reflects B3's values and thus also the requirements B3 has for employees, partners, suppliers, and subcontractors.

Cornerstones of the B3 Group's work are customer orientation, skilled employees, and committed leadership. Our long-term success depends on our ability to create value for those we serve, our customers, through our most important asset – our employees. The expressed and implicit needs, demands, wishes, and expectations of our customers shall guide our company, our employees, and our operations. To achieve this, a culture that puts the customer and the employee first is required, supported by guidelines for our operations and a personal, active, and visible commitment from and for each individual. Therefore, it is important for B3 to create conditions for satisfied employees, something we achieve by providing the freedom to influence one's own work situation.

Our Vision Shows the Way

To be Sweden's best consulting company – for our employees, clients, and owners. Continuously developing as an employer, supplier, and partner is essential for B3 to be Sweden's best consulting company. Having a clear vision and plan with measurable goals, where the aim is for everyone to contribute and feel engaged, is important for us at B3 to remain relevant to both existing and new employees and our customers.

The foundation of the Code of Conduct consists of B3 Consulting Group's core values, which provide guidance in everything B3 does. We become only what we make ourselves. If you want to, you can; if you can, you will.

B3 follows the UN's Global Compact, and B3's Code of Conduct is based on the Global Compact's ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. The principles of the Code of Conduct are also based on the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the ILO's core conventions on labor rights.
