NIBE follows global management systems to monitor quality, environmental issues and saftey

The quality and environmental management is structured according to the standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Today is 98% of our companies certified, and our target is that all sites shall be certified by the end of 2016. In the future, if newly acquired sites are not certified, we will allow two years to develop a certified management system at the site.

 

Risk Management

We assess our risks systematically and take proactive approach concerning trends and potential changes in pricing, legislation or the market. Internal operational risks are controlled by management systems and control procedures. A new Risk Management system was launched in 2015 which will increase the accuracy and overview of our analyses and actions.

 

Local companies around the globe are responsible for assessing and monitoring their sustainability risks. Risk assessment including aspects like changing legal demands, changes in customer requirements, climate change, and access to raw materials, as well as environmental impact, and health and safety are carried out on a regular basis. Local boards are responsible for reporting identified risks and action plans to Business Area Managers, and in some cases to NIBE’s board.

 

NIBE’s sustainability team visits the local production companies at least every third year in order to check compliance and make sure that NIBE’s values and business principles are adhered to.

NIBE Suppliers

 

NIBE is a signee of UN Global Compact since 2014. We are committed to following the 10 principles and to promote these principles within our sphere of influence. Our core values are expressed in eight fundamental building blocks that guide our decisions and business behaviour in all situations. We expect our Suppliers to embrace the same set of internationally accepted principles and apply them in all their business conduct.


What we expect

 

We expect reliable and honest co-operation based on mutual trust and respect. Suppliers must follow legislation and internationally agreed principles as expressed in for example UN Global Compacts 10 principles and the ETI Base Code. We expect that promises are kept and that problems are discussed with a solution oriented, open mind. We expect our suppliers to give us feedback that can help us to develop to a better customer.

NIBE is built on deeply rooted values and business principles that reflect high moral standards and business ethics.

 

We have signed Global Compact, which means that we abide to internationally accepted principles concerning human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption and expect our business partners to follow the same basic principles.

 

All our employees must be familiar with our Values, Our Business Principles and Our Working Methods, which are summarized in three brochures and available in 14 languages. These brochures form a framework for all our business behavior and applies equally to all NIBE employees wherever they are in the world.

Compliance towards our policies is regularly checked by conducting internal audits. We also have grievance mechanisms and a whistle blower function in order to get instant feedback if something is not working the way it should.
