Taking responsibility seriously and ethically correct
To ensure the commitment to human rights in our direct operations, Nordzucker has been a member of Sedex (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) since 2009.
Through SEDEX, our factories are regularly checked via SMETA audits (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) based on the Ethical Trade Initiative Base Code (ETI Base Code). As a result of this transparent, third-party verified process, we showcase compliance with high social, environmental and ethics standards, including strict requirements on human rights and labour rights protection of our employees.
Sedex is one of the world’s leading supporters of ethical trade that seeks to improve working conditions in global supply chains. Sedex provides practical tools, services and a network to help companies improve their responsible and sustainable business practices and source their supplies responsibly.
