PURPOSE OF OUR CODE OF CONDUCT
Our code of conduct has been adopted to clarify the values and principles that govern our relationship with employees, customers, business partners, owners and other stakeholders.
We expect our suppliers to fully respect and comply with our Code of Conduct in their relationship with Gluetec. We also expect suppliers’ own operations to comply with a corresponding code, unless this is prevented by laws and regulations governing their operations. Deviations from our Code of Conduct must be promptly disclosed to Gluetec for further assessment and action.
The code is based on internationally agreed rules, mainly the ten principles according to the UN Global Compact. According to these, all companies must maintain a number of basic guidelines concerning human rights, working conditions, the external environment and corruption within the framework they can influence. The code has been adopted by Gluetec AB’s board and can only be revoked or changed by the board.
BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, WORKING CONDITIONS AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Fundamental human rights must be respected and applied equally to all employees, regardless of the form of employment. All employees have the right to join legal associations and organizations of their choice and to negotiate their working conditions collectively. We do not accept forms of forced labour, debt slavery, sexual services or human trafficking. We respect children’s right to personal development, education and we do not use child labour.
DIVERSITY, GENDER EQUALITY, AND INCLUSION
We believe that people’s differences contribute to an attractive and dynamic workplace. We must offer a workplace where differences are respected and appreciated. Both our employees and customers should feel included. All employees must be treated fairly and without prejudice, regardless of gender, transgender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion or other belief, ethnicity, disability or age.
In a similar way, we treat customers and other stakeholders fairly and without prejudice. No employee shall be subjected to abusive treatment or harassment. Recruitment, personal development efforts and promotion shall take place on the basis of competence, qualification, merits and performance.
HEALTH, WORK ENVIRONMENT AND SAFETY
A good and safe working environment is important for Gluetec. As an employer, Gluetec has the main responsibility for the work environment and safety in the workplace, which in turn affects the health of our employees. We want to offer a physically, mentally and socially healthy and developing workplace for all employees, and actively work to prevent illness. All employees also have their own work environment responsibility by e.g. follow safety regulations and to point out risks and deficiencies in the work environment to their immediate superior.
Our managers are responsible for the safety of employees and must, in addition to giving instructions and ensuring that these are followed, also create an understanding of the necessary safety measures. Gluetec has zero tolerance for drugs in the workplace, as they can jeopardize the safety, work climate, health and safety of our employees.
