Södra’s Supplier Code contains guidelines for the duties and responsibilities of Södra’s suppliers in relation to business principles, working conditions, respect for human rights and the environment. The guidelines are minimum requirements, and should not be considered an exhaustive list.
The Supplier Code applies not only to Södra’s contracted suppliers (both verbal and written), but also to those contracted by Södra’s suppliers. The supplier is responsible for ensuring that its contracted suppliers comply with Södra’s Supplier Code or equivalent requirements.
A “supplier” is defined as a provider of both goods and services, with the exception of timber supplies from Södra’s members.
