Supplier follow-up

Statkraft has developed a version of Statkraft's Code of Conduct which is especially aimed at the Group's suppliers.

This document describes the Group's requirements for suppliers as regards protection of the environment, human rights, labour rights and labour standards, health and safety and anti-corruption. Statkraft's suppliers are informed of our Code of Conduct and other relevant requirements during the procurement processes and contract signing.

Follow-up of suppliers

A comprehensive systematic approach ensures that the correct requirements are applied to Statkraft's suppliers in all phases of the procurement process, from pre-qualification to delivery follow-up. Particularly important and vulnerable deliveries are subject to more rigorous follow-up through several supplier links in the form of company visits and unannounced inspections.

In 2013, Statkraft started the implementation of a risk-based tool which will identify and follow up risk topics throughout the purchasing process. The tool will make it possible to identify risk areas such as corruption, safety or child labour at an early stage, and the follow-up will be focused on high-risk areas.
