CSR

Code of Conduct

Our company, SCANCON Encoders A/S is committed to sustainability. This includes respect for universally recognised principles on human rights including labour rights, the environment, and anti-corruption.

Therefore, we seek to ensure that our own company and our suppliers operate in accordance with the requirements of the Guiding Principles on Business. Responsible supply chain management concerns cooperation with your suppliers to ensure that they have CSR strategies and to create ongoing improvements in suppliers' CSR performance. It is especially important to focus on high-risk suppliers, for example from industries that are known to face particular challenges, or from countries where national legislation and internationally recognised principles for human rights and labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption, are not fully respected. 

Our company recognises that establishing the required processes outlined in the Code of Conduct requires both time and resources, especially in the initial phases, as we are also implementing similar processes in our operations. The Code of Conduct should therefore be understood as a tool for cooperation and dialogue with our supply chain partners about improving systems to manage adverse impacts on human rights including labour rights, the environment, and anti-corruption.

In case of non-compliance with requirements in our Code of Conduct, we will focus on suppliers’ ability and willingness to demonstrate continuous improvements. We feel confident that cooperation and dialogue will result in a more efficient partnership, which both parties will benefit from.

If you have any questions regarding our responsible supply chain management program in general, please do not hesitate to contact our offices.
