Responsible co-operation ensures a sustainable value chain
Suppliers are our valuable partners. We want to be a responsible and trusted partner, so we also work closely with our suppliers to ensure a socially, environmentally and economically responsible value chain. We have a continuous dialogue on supplier innovations and ways to support our customers’ business.
Supplier Code of Conduct
Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets the standards that we expect our suppliers to follow. It is the starting point for any new or existing business relationship, and it covers areas such as health and safety, child and forced labor, human rights, anti-corruption, compliance with laws and regulations, environment and climate change, and more. We expect our suppliers to make every effort to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct.
Supplier audits & development
One way to ensure and support compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct is to conduct supplier sustainability audits. We have developed an annual auditing program that identifies the suppliers to be audited based on a supplier sustainability risk assessment.
