Pressalit A/S adheres to an ethical set of rules – also known as our Code of Conduct - which includes policies for: Diversity, Human Rights, Compliance with Law, Anti-Corruption and Environmental Care. View our Code of Conduct here.
Pressalit seeks to maintain certain guidelines with regard to supplier requirements. These relate not only to quality, but also to our code of conduct, which defines our requirements regarding human rights, restricting child labour and ensuring acceptable working conditions for employees. This is increasingly important, as we buy globally from markets where Danish standards are not a given.
Pressalit A/S also subscribes to the UN’s Global Compact, as we wish to support a global focus on corporate responsibility.
Despite the fact that Pressalit is both environmentally and quality certified in accordance with ISO 9001 & 14001, we do not require that all our suppliers meet these standards. We do, however, emphasise that all our suppliers follow ISO principles. By this we mean that it is important the supplier work with process control, establishing potential complaint procedures and corrective and preventive actions etc.
While environmental and quality certification is not a requirement, we prefer our suppliers to comply with these standards. It is, however, a minimum requirement that the supplier complies with environmental legislation and working regulations in his native country.
We refer to our purchasing conditions, which can be viewed here: Purchasing terms.
