Compliance and due diligence are the building blocks of the foundation on which sustainability is built. It is a continuous effort that requires surveillance, analysis and inquiries. It is also work that we enjoy doing as it gives us a greater insight into our supply chain and helps us grow even closer relationships with suppliers.
As a part of the MESSAGE A/S organisation, we work hard to strengthen this foundation.
Code of Conduct and Policies
Our suppliers are our closest partners in the work to become a more responsible business. Therefore, we require all our suppliers to read and sign our Code of Conduct and policies. These documents are a direct expression of our values and priorities, and by signing them our suppliers show that they share our ambitions and approach to CSR.
Our Code of Conduct is based on the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and UNs Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It contains aspects concerning the environment, animal rights, corruption and whistleblowing. All of which we expect our suppliers to respect with regard to current legislation. Moreover, these are further described in the policies below.
