Supplier Code of Conduct
In GRUNDFOS we value responsibility at our suppliers, and we wish that they live up to the same high standards as we do. We believe in communication and dialogue as a strong development tool, and we therefore both encourage and support our suppliers when it comes to setting ambitions and responsible goals.
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.
GRUNDFOS has signed the UN Global Compact, and therefore our Supplier Code of Conduct is based on this framework of requirements. Just as the UN Global Compact, our Supplier Code of Conduct states the minimum requirements acceptable for GRUNDFOS when it comes to social and ethical issues at suppliers, and therefore compliance alone does not indicate a world class level within social responsibility. 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.
