How we apply the Code of Conduct
Perstorp’s Code of Conduct has been drawn up to underline the principles that direct the company’s relations with personnel, business partners and other parties. It applies to all companies within Perstorp, for the company’s board, management group and all personnel. Perstorp also encourages its suppliers, distributors and other business partners with which Perstorp has close relations, to act according to these principles.
Every employee is given a briefing on the Code of Conduct by their immediate manager. All employees within Perstorp must know and fully understand the content of the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct shall be considered as a tool and support in everyday work, and it helps us to live up to our three core values: focused innovation, reliability and responsibility.
The Code of Conduct is mandatory and failing to follow its principles can lead to disciplinary measures.
