Ethics at the Elmera Group
Elmera Group operates with stringent requirements within its own organisation regarding proper conduct in business and expects the company's suppliers to adhere to the same high standards.
Elmera's suppliers are obliged to comply with and abide by the eight fundamental ILO conventions on:
- freedom of association and protection of the right to organise (No. 87)
- the right to organise and to bargain collectively (No. 98)
- the prohibition and abolition of forced labour (No. 29 and No. 105)
- equal remuneration for men and women for work of equal value and discrimination in respect of employment and occupation (No. 100 and No. 111
- minimum age for admission to employment and work (No. 138)
- prohibition and immediate action for the elimination of the worst forms of child labour (No. 182)
In addition, our suppliers must ensure that any sub-contractors they use directly to fulfil the contract with Elmera also comply with these conventions.
Through its internal code of conduct, which is based on recognised national and international standards, Elmera has adopted strict anti-corruption provisions.
To prevent corruption further down the supply chain, Elmera requires that these regulations shall also apply to the supplier's employees and any sub-contractors.
Elmera is entitled to terminate the agreement with any supplier convicted of or fined for corruption. To qualify to compete in new tenders, it is a requirement that suppliers have not been convicted of corruption, organised crime or similar in the past five years.
Elmera also requires that suppliers and any subcontractors have pay and working conditions in accordance with the applicable regulations.
