Supplier Code of Conduct
So just as we stipulate standards of ethical practice for ourselves in a formal Code of Conduct, we have a Supplier Code of Conduct that establishes related requirements for all of our suppliers. We expect them to share our approach to ethics, human rights and protecting the environment, from working hours, anti-bribery to conflict minerals. We believe this is essential in building and developing trusting relationships with our suppliers.
The Supplier Code of Conduct is included in the Group Framework Agreement, and therefore all suppliers of direct materials to Grundfos shall comply with the expectations and requirements of the code.
Compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct is a requirement for developing relations between Grundfos and our suppliers, and therefore it is also a foundation for reaching more ambitious goals together.
