Code of Conduct for Rawlplug’s Suppliers – let’s grow together!

3 min

In light of the dynamically changing business environment and having defined the CSR criteria, the Management Board of the Rawlplug Group has resolved to circulate a document entitled 'Code of Conduct for Rawlplug’s Suppliers'.

The Code of Conduct for Rawlplug’s Suppliers is an important element of our sustainable development and responsible supply chain policy. Its foundation as well as a relevant component is Rawlplug’s promotion of the idea of social responsibility among its suppliers and its willingness to collaborate with counterparties who respect human rights, act in accordance with legal regulations, ensure safe and decent working conditions, follow the highest ethical standards and – last but not least – care for natural environment.

Shared development vectors

Purchasing is one of strategic business areas at Rawlplug, which makes all the principles collected and described in this Code fully aligned with Rawlplug’s strategy, mission, and vision, all of which are reflected in Rawlplug’s other internal documents: Sustainable Management Systems Policy, Code of Ethics, Sustainable Purchasing Policy, as well as other regulations and guidelines (including those concerning fair competition, anti-corruption or conflict of interest).

The principles collected in our code are intended to function as vectors, showing both us and our Suppliers paths for improving individual as well as joint operations. We intend to implement them together with our Suppliers, striving to make business ethics and corporate social responsibility an integral part of our relationships, on a par with innovation, quality and safety.
