Our personnel must act in the best interest of Metsä Group and avoid any conflicts of interest. A conflict of interest may occur when the person’s interests and the interests of Metsä Group are not the same, even if the decision or outcome appears to be beneficial for everyone. Such interests can be financial or non-financial and mean anything that can influence decision-making.
It is important to recognise conflicts of interests. Special attention should be paid for example when a family member or a close friend is somehow involved. Even when nothing is wrong, the appearance of conflicting interests may have a significant negative impact on Metsä Group’s reputation and business.
