Supplier human rights assessment

DMA - Generic Disclosures on Management Approach 

Our supply chain is global and, to not be complicit in human rights abuses, we must know where the risks are and how to mitigate those risks. Human rights assessment is part of our new evaluation system and is to be made before on-boarding of new suppliers of direct material. We have started to roll out new procedures and tools to the companies within the NIBE Group, but as the procurement organisation to a large extent is decentralised, it will take some years before this will be fully implemented. For existing suppliers we are planning assessment according to the same procedures and criteria as we use for new suppliers.
