Why a code of conduct for suppliers?
Saab is committed to high standards of business ethics and sustainability. Saab’s Supplier Code of Conduct is based on the UN Global Compact’s ten principles and expresses the expectations that we hold for our suppliers.
We encourage our suppliers to establish their own codes of conduct based on similar standards and to flow down these standards to all persons and entities supplying goods or services to Saab.
We also expect that our suppliers will, upon receiving reasonable notice, give Saab access to relevant premises and documentation to verify compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct.
If a supplier fails to meet our expectations as set out in the Supplier Code of Conduct, Saab’s general approach is to encourage improvement. Critical deviations or repeated unwillingness to make improvement, however, may jeopardize the supplier’s relationship with Saab.
