Responsible business practices

To gain our customers' trust, we must act with high ethical standards and professionalism. We have zero tolerance for corruption, kickbacks, or other incentives that may influence a business transaction. Our values guide us in all our relationships, including with our customers and partners.

Code of Conduct

We require our employees and major suppliers to sign and follow our Code of Conduct policies. We regularly audit our direct hardware suppliers to ensure they comply with our Code of Conduct for our Suppliers. The audit results are followed up with each hardware supplier. 

We have also launched a certification process for hardware suppliers to ensure that the materials they use have been manufactured following laws that prohibit forced labor and human trafficking.

Suppliers who violate our code of conduct may face consequences and even have the relationship terminated.

We also encourage our employees, suppliers, and customers to report unethical behavior such as forced labor and human trafficking.

To demonstrate our position on this issue, we have committed to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Sustainable investments and procurement

All our major investment decisions include a sustainability evaluation. Before a decision, an analysis of social factors such as human rights, the work environment and environmental impact must be conducted. The decision also includes climate considerations and internal carbon pricing.

Whistleblower function

We have a web-based whistleblower service managed by an independent third party to guarantee anonymity. For more information about this service and our whistleblower policy, click here.

Governance 

The Board of Directors has the overarching responsibility for strategy, sustainability, ethics, and results. Our CEO and management decide on short-and long-term targets, focus areas, and priorities. The Sustainability Steering Committee supports the CEO and management, business areas, and Group functions. The business areas identify and execute activities to reach short-and long-term targets.
