Due Diligence Assessments

We consider our greatest risk to be human rights violations related to:

    • Production of fiberglass in countries with a high risk of human rights violations.

Measures

Annual review and revision of the company’s due diligence assessments in the board and management review. Here, we evaluate both internal risk and risk in the supply chain.

New Suppliers

We evaluate all new suppliers against the risk determined in the management review. Critical suppliers receive an evaluation form along with our own Code of Conduct outlining our expectations. Based on the feedback, we may conduct additional specified evaluations and, ultimately, possibly revise locally at the supplier’s location.

Annual review of critical suppliers

The annual review evaluates the experiences we have had during the period and summarizes any events we have observed.

Detection and corrective actions

If suspicions or clear violations of fundamental human rights and decent working conditions are discovered in operations, we make contact and do what we can, using our influence, to get the responsible party to change behavior or rectify the situation.

Status for the last period

We have not recorded any incidents or indications of clear violations of fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in the last period.
