Martin & Servera adopted its first Code of Conduct in 2008 and aims to control the entire supply chain. One way we ensure that our Code of Conduct is complied, is to conduct repeated audit inspections around the world. The current updates made to the Code of Conduct will improve it to be a better tool for follow-up work and feedback. We want all of our suppliers, both in Sweden and abroad, to work in accordance with the requirements stated in the Code of Conduct. This applies to both the main corporation as well as potential subcontractors.
Martin & Servera’s Code of Conduct is based on the United Nations Framework and the Guiding Principles on business and Human Rights (UNGP), the Convention on the Rights of the Child (OHCHR); the International Labour Organization’s (ILO’s) Fundamental Conventions on working conditions and rights in working life; the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development; the United Nations Convention against Corruption and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
The main points of the updated Code of Conduct
- Clarifying requirements on respecting human rights
- An anti-corruption policy shall be adopted and followed
- Reinforced requirements on labour law issues and work environment issues
- Stricter requirements on animal welfare and work to counteract resistance to antibiotics
- Management systems including a policy for social responsibility shall be in place
- Both local and global environmental aspects shall be taken into consideration in the value chain
