Diversity and gender equality

The area of gender equality is an important focus area for Swedish Match. The Company maintains, however that diversity goes beyond the subject of gender equality and will make no dist­inctions in its employment practices for individuals with regard to ­origin, religion, sexual orientation or other irrelevant parameters.

In Sweden, within Swedish Match’s Corporate Functions, Scandinavia Division, and SMD Logistics, the special gender equality project initialized in 2014, continued in 2015 to further improve conditions that promote gender equality in the workplace. This is an important initiative to ensure that Swedish Match is a modern, competitive, and successful company that attract the best talents and retain the best employees, regardless of the person’s gender.
