Policies and Reports

Social responsibility and concern for the environment are important to us when we select suppliers and products. We therefore have a societal impact and sustainability strategy and Supplier Code of Conduct that set guidelines for what we require in environmental matters.
Here you can also find Societal impact and Sustainability strategy, guidelines for Gifts and hospitality and the Statement on Modern Slavery Act.

Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC)

The framework for our work to foster environmental and social responsibility in our supply chain is based on our Supplier Code of Conduct and various guidelines for responsible sourcing.
Supplier Code of Conduct defines our requirements for suppliers in terms of their responsible business conduct and ensures that we obtain the greatest possible responsibility in our supply chain.
