Workplace Code of Conduct

Electrolux has a long tradition of providing safe and healthy working conditions, and to care for the environment as well as our own employees and people around us.

An important fundament for these efforts is the Electrolux Workplace Code of Conduct, adopted in 2002 and updated in 2014. The Code defines minimum acceptable standards for health and safety, environment, labor and human rights – in all countries, wherever we operate. It is based on internationally recognized treaties and agreements, such as the core conventions of the International Labor Organization, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the UN Global Compact.

The Code covers:

  • Child labor
  • Forced labor
  • Security arrangements
  • Health and safety
  • Non-discrimination
  • Harassment and abuse
  • Disciplinary action and grievances
  • Working hours
  • Compensation
  • Freedom of association
  • Environmental compliance
  • Corruption and business ethics

The Code of Conduct is applicable to all Electrolux locations and compliance is required of suppliers. The Code is further specified by the Workplace Standard, which contains detailed requirements as well as examples of best practice. To support the education in the Code as well as compliance, Electrolux have education, risk assessment and audit programs in place.
