Supplier Conduct Principles
Our aim is to work with our suppliers to ensure full compliance of the following principles, as they in turn apply them to their own suppliers who contribute to the delivery of goods and services to TOMRA.
Compliance with Laws and Other Legal Requirements
TOMRA suppliers will comply with all applicable laws and regulations in all locations where they conduct business.
Forced or Involuntary Labor
TOMRA suppliers will not use involuntary labor of any type (e.g. forced, bonded, indentured or involuntary prison labor).
TOMRA suppliers will not use child labor. The term “child” refers to any person employed under the age of 15 (or 14 where the law of the country permits), or under the age for completing compulsory education, whichever is greatest.
TOMRA suppliers will conduct business and generally behave impeccably towards all employees, business associates, and others, and show respect for foreign cultures and customs. TOMRA suppliers will not accept any form of harassment, discrimination or other behavior that colleagues or business associates may regard as threatening or degrading.
TOMRA suppliers will abide by TOMRA’s principles of commitment to an inclusive work culture and the recognition that all people are unique and valuable, and should be respected for their individual abilities. TOMRA suppliers will not accept any form of harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.
Health and Safety
TOMRA suppliers will provide their employees with a safe and healthy workplace in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
TOMRA suppliers will operate in a manner that is protective of the environment. At a minimum, TOMRA suppliers must comply with all applicable environmental laws, regulations and standards. TOMRA suppliers will also comply with any additional environmental requirements specific to the products or services being provided to TOMRA as stated in the specification and contract documents.
TOMRA suppliers will comply with all applicable anti-bribery laws, including the Norwegian Anti-Corruption Act (Korrupsjonslovgivningen), U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and all applicable local laws where TOMRA and its subsidiaries operate, and will accurately reflect all transactions in their books and records.
TOMRA suppliers will maintain documentation necessary to demonstrate compliance with TOMRA’s Supplier Conduct Principles.
TOMRA suppliers will make these guidelines known to employees dealing with TOMRA, and promote and monitor compliance.
TOMRA will routinely assess selected suppliers’ compliance with these principles. Note that failure to demonstrate compliance with the principles will require the implementation of corrective action by the supplier,
and may result in contract termination.
