Supplier Code of Conduct

We want to collaborate with genuine suppliers that take responsibility for their actions. Therefore, we have a Supplier Code of Conduct that defines what we require and expect from our suppliers of goods and services.

A sustainable supply chain, where every supplier sets requirements on its suppliers, is a prerequisite for achieving Svenska kraftnät's goal of maintaining a sustainable business. Serious risks related to health, environment, discrimination and corruption could be minimized.

Svenska kraftnät's Supplier Code of Conduct is used in procurements starting from 1 July 2019.
