Workplace Policy and Supplier Workplace Standard

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

An important fundament for these efforts is the Electrolux Workplace Policy, which was first launched in 2002 (under the name ‘Workplace Code of Conduct’).

The Workplace Policy 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 Workplace Policy 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 Workplace Policy is applicable to all Electrolux locations. Our Supplier Workplace Standard applies to our suppliers and contains the same requirements as the Workplace Policy. In this way, we set the same expectations on suppliers as on our own operations. The Workplace Policy and Supplier Workplace Standard are further specified by the Workplace Directive, which contains detailed requirements as well as examples of best practice. To support the implementation of these Policies and Directives, Electrolux conducts training and risk assessments, and has audit programs in place.
