About our code and policies

The Electrolux Code of Conduct and related Group Policies and Directives are a fundamental part of the Group’s strategy, and the basis for how we drive sustainability within the company.

We have the firm commitment to always act ethically, respect human rights and comply with rules and regulations applicable to us. The Code of Conduct is an introduction to our most important policies and principles, guiding the Electrolux way of doing business. Our Policies for People, Workplace, Anti-Corruption, Environment and Tax fall under the umbrella of the Code of Conduct, being more operational in nature. They are all based on fundamental international treaties such as the International Bill of Human Rights, the conventions of the International Labour Organization and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

Ownership and monitoring

The Electrolux group-wide policies convey strong and coherent messages to our employees across the Group on how we conduct business. All Group Policies are approved by Group Management and are mandatory, monitored and enforced. Each policy has a policy owner and a policy holder responsible for communicating the policy and monitoring its implementation. A variety of channels such as the Group’s intranet, e-learnings and face-to-face trainings are used to inform and educate our employees on those policies relevant in their everyday jobs.

Monitoring procedures include audits of our own operations as well as those of our suppliers, and self-assessments.
