The NSG Group is working closely with key raw material suppliers to ensure that materials are responsibly sourced both to protect and enhance the environment and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of supplier employees.
NSG Group Procurement has functional level policies and procedures that follow the NSG Group Code of Conduct but relate more specifically to the operating practices of the Procurement function. The NSG Group aims to enjoy the highest reputation worldwide for the professional, legal and ethical way in which it conducts its business. The overriding intention of the NSG Group Supplier Code of Conduct is that our suppliers will carry out their business in a safe, professional, legal and ethical manner and in a way that demonstrates corporate social responsibility. In order to provide materials or services to NSG Group, suppliers are required to comply with this Code of Conduct.
NSG Group Supplier Code of Conduct
Social behaviour : All suppliers must conform to the relevant International Labour Organisation Labour Standards as a minimum requirement. This means suppliers must strive to apply employment standards which promote the application of human rights. There should be no intentional discrimination for recruitments, promotions, job transfer, dismissal and other employment related activities on the basis of race, colour, creed, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, origin, disability, union membership, political affiliation or other status protected by law. Local laws on age discrimination must be observed. Abuse, harassment or intimidation will not be tolerated under any circumstances nor will the act of pressurising or retaliating against the individual who reports such harassment. While these general principles are applicable to all of our suppliers, each specific case should be carefully reviewed with reference to the law in each of the countries in which they operate.
Environmental Behaviour : Our suppliers must recognise the crucial importance of their role in reducing environmental impact. They must play their part in creating a prosperous and sustainable future by continually seeking to achieve best practice in environmental protection.
