Activity catalogue for inspiration

The purpose of the activity catalogue is to inspire action that will make the principles of the code as concrete as possible. There is not a one-size fits all, so how to practically implement of the code, will vary for each organisation and company.

However, results require a systematic effort, and each organization or company should therefore develop a clear plan for how it will reach its goals.
