Corporate Responsibility - Our Promises

In KIRKBI, corporate responsibility is integrated in our Fundamentals and the three Promises to people, to partners and to the planet. With these Promises, we aim to fulfil a strong focus on creating a positive impact through responsible ownership and investments.


  • People Promise – Succeed together: To enable execution of the business strategy and to build the long-term health of the company – we believe people and values make the difference.
  • Partner Promise – Mutual value creation: To build partnerships that enhance mutual value creation, entail openness and trust – partners should feel energised and inspired from their involvement with KIRKBI.
  • Planet Promise – Positive impact: To create a positive impact on the planet through responsible investments and ownership – a commitment to society to keep earning a trusted position.

We believe that by acting according to the Promises, KIRKBI is in the best possible position to deliver enhanced value and a positive impact for and with all stakeholders.


We continuously strive to develop the Promises approach and refine how we live them – and always with a longer-term orientation in mind. In KIRKBI’s Annual Report 2017, we have outlined how we invest and our processes for people development within KIRKBI together with some of the results achieved in 2017. You can find the report here.
