Our vision is to create world-class solutions in sustainable energy means an interaction between economy, social factors and the environment.
By following Our Values you contribute to NIBE's sustainable development and the global change to a sustainable society. I am convinced that you will make a first class contribution wherever you are in the world.
Our sustainable value creation supports international initiatives.
By delivering long-term sustainable value to our customers, we are also able to maintain good profitability and help achieve the global development goals.
In line with our operational priorities and our assessments of where we can assert influence, we have chosen to work mainly with 6 of the 17 global goals in Agenda 2030 External link..
Our Values give you guidance in how NIBE sees issues affecting sustainable development*. We have separated them into eight areas that we call our Code of Conduct. Together with Our Business Principles they form the basis of our business operations.
Our Values also show the customers, suppliers owners and other stakeholders how we view these issues
*Sustainable development is about satisfying the needs of today without compromising the opportunities for future generations to meet their needs. One can see sustainable development as a balance between economy, social factors and the environment.
The Code of Conduct, together with the rules for company management and the Group's policies and guidelines, provides a framework for our operations. The code applies to employees, management and board members of NIBE, regardless of where in the world they are located. This also applies to all minority owned companies within NIBE.
The Code of Conduct also shows what we expect from our business partners. The Code of Conduct gives comprehensive guidance in eight areas.
Within a number of areas the Code of Conduct is supplemented by more detailed policies, guidelines and management systems.
*Special treatment may for example refer to gender, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, political views or social or ethnic origin.
*The precautionary principle means that in situations where we suspect environmental and health risks but do not have sufficient knowledge of these risks, we do not put off or ignore decisions on suitable protective measures.
The Group President and CEO has the overall responsibility for the application of Our Values. As support there is the Group's Sustainability Council and the Group's Sustainability team.
The Group makes regular follow up and risk assessments of how Our Values are applied. Development and performance is reported in the annual and sustainable report. Compliance is maintained by the sustainability audits.
The management system for quality, environment and working environment contributes to Our Values becoming a reality. Such systems must therefore be in place at all units.
If you work within the Group you can find Our Business Principles, Our Values, policies, guidelines and checklists on the Group intranet, one.nibe.net External link..
Our Business Principles are available in a large number of languages. NIBE's annual report and sustainability report give information on how we realise Our Business Principles in our work.
