We require all suppliers and business partners to commit to our Supplier Code of Conduct.
Our commitments to responsible and ethical business depend not only on our own people but also upon forming cooperative relationships with our business partners who share our commitments. We believe that ethical and responsible work is also successful work. We also require our suppliers and other business partners to comply with applicable laws and expect them to follow equivalent ethical business standards as stated in the Neste Code of Conduct, further described in our Supplier Code of Conduct.
The Supplier Code of Conduct, updated and implemented in 2020, outlines the basic requirements Neste expects its suppliers and their own first tier sub-suppliers, contractors and business partners to adhere to and implement throughout their businesses.
The Supplier Code of Conduct is included in the terms of contracts with all suppliers, contractors and other business partners participating in the delivery of any raw materials, products, components, materials or services to Neste, covering both direct and indirect procurement. Companies consolidated through mergers and acquisitions are also expected to implement Neste Supplier Code of Conduct in their sourcing.
We require our suppliers and other business partners to comply with applicable laws, and we expect them to follow equivalent ethical business standards as stated in Neste Code of Conduct, further described in our Supplier Code of Conduct.
However, Neste encourages and supports its suppliers to continually improve and develop beyond the minimum, to reach the human rights standards and expectations set out in the Neste Human Rights Principle.
Guide for practical support
To support the implementation of the Neste Supplier Code of Conduct, Neste carries out training and provides a guide (PDF) with practical recommendations to help our suppliers meet their obligations to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct.
