Great Britain Sustainability Responsible business

Responsible business

We want to develop a sustainable value chain – from seed to customer. In order to succeed, more of us have to move in the same direction. That is why we want to take responsibility across the entire chain. It means that we have to work closely with our suppliers and customers to create joint ambitions for sustainability. Collaboration, responsibility and monitoring form the basis of responsible business, and a sustainable society.

Always act responsible

Every little thing that we do is part of the bigger picture. To create more clarity around how we, and our suppliers, should act, we now have two Codes of Conduct. One internal Code for our employees, and one Code for our suppliers.

The Supplier Code contains requirements on human rights, labour and the environment. It should be included in all our agreements. Most of our suppliers are located in Sweden or the EU, which facilitates both evaluation and control. We use evaluations to assess whether the supplier has identified, managed and lived up to our requirements.
