Sustainable development needs co-operation. We want long term business relations where we can build mutual trust and where we can co-operate to accomplish improvements. Our supply chain is an important part of our value chain.
We realize that our suppliers affect NIBE’s total performance and could also have an impact on our reputation and brand. That is why we assess our suppliers towards our values and business ethics, based on internationally accepted standards (i.e. Global Compact), and expect compliance. Underperforming suppliers are at risk to be replaced if there is no willingness to improve, but we will on the other hand work to find long-term close co-operation with preferred suppliers.
