Ethical rules are a matter of course at Pressalit
Since 2002, Pressalit has participated in the United Nations initiative Global Compact. The principles of Global Compact have, for example, been incorporated into our Code of Conduct, which is a set of internal, ethical rules that all employees must be familiar with and adhere to in their work.
The principles in Global Compact have also been integrated into our dealings with our suppliers, whereby we adhere to certain guidelines on human rights, child labour and working environment conditions. These areas become increasingly significant as we buy from markets where standards may not always be equal to Danish ones. We expect our suppliers to be environment and quality certified, but it is not a requirement. It is, however, a minimum requirement for the supplier to comply with environmental legislation and working conditions in his native country.
In our daily work we actively use our Code of Conduct, as illustrated below.
