Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

shutterstock_1233219595_sOur vision is to have a kp culture where everyone feels valued, respected and empowered to contribute their unique backgrounds, perspectives, talents and experiences to reach their full potential.
 
We are aiming to support a diverse and inclusive workplace and leverage the value of diversity & inclusion to make kp a stronger business, in line with our ethical standards and company values.
 
The representation of women in management and senior leadership positions, as well as their representation in the Executive team is important to us.
At kp we value diversity, and women are recognised as being key contributors to the potential success of our business. This is a clear business imperative and forms a key part of our ESG strategy, and is further linked to our debt refinancing. Fostering diversity and inclusion at all levels of kp matters to us, which is why we recently set up our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiative, a company-wide, global effort to support a diverse and inclusive workplace. One of the most visible, although by no means only, outcomes of this effort, will be a significant increase in gender diversity at management levels. To help make that happen, we will educate, promote and encourage diversity and inclusion, while advocating for the business benefits and raising awareness of the issue.
