Code of Conduct - Business partners

ASSA ABLOY believes in social and environmental responsibility and ethical conduct, and expects its business partners to do the same. ASSA ABLOY is being developed with long-term sustainability in mind, which also includes building sustainable relationships with our business partners.

Furthermore, ASSA ABLOY and its business partners have an obligation to all stakeholders to observe high standards of integrity and fair dealing. This is the foundation for and the reason why ASSA ABLOY has created the Business Partner Code of Conduct. 

Our policies and the Business Partner Code of Conduct are further based on:

  • UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and connected UN Conventions 
  • ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy 
  • OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises 
  • UN Global Compact 
  • ISO 14001 


Who does the Business Partner Code of Conduct apply to? 

The Business Partner Code of Conduct applies to all our business partners that provide products or services to ASSA ABLOY, or that are engaged or instructed to act for or on behalf of ASSA ABLOY, such as e.g. suppliers (and sub-contractors if used while engaging with ASSA ABLOY), consultants, distributors, agents and other representatives.
