All Electrolux activities must be conducted with respect and consideration for human rights, health and safety as well as for the environment, as outlined in the Electrolux Workplace Policy, the Electrolux Supplier Workplace Standard and the Electrolux Environmental Policy.
The Workplace Directive describes how Group operations and suppliers are to meet the Workplace Policy and the Supplier Workplace Standard criteria. It contains mandatory requirements, but also best practices. The Directive is also a guide to what auditing criteria Electrolux applies in its audits of own and supplier operations.
Implementing the Workplace Directive
Divided into 16 chapters, the Directive corresponds to each provision within the Workplace Policy and the Supplier Workplace Standard. Electrolux employees, including HR and environmental managers, undergo training and all suppliers are required to adhere to the Supplier Workplace Standard and the Directive before being accepted as suppliers to Electrolux.
