Workplace Code of Conduct

Electrolux has a long tradition of providing safe and healthy working conditions, opportunities for education and health care, and careful accounting of environmental impacts.

An important component in these efforts is the Electrolux Workplace Code of Conduct, which was adopted by Group Management in early 2002. The Code defines minimum acceptable work standards for all people involved in the manufacture and sale of Group products – in all countries, business sectors and occupations. It is based on internationally recognized treaties and agreements, such as the core conventions of the International Labor Organization and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

The Code covers:

  • child labor
  • forced labor
  • health and safety
  • non-discrimination
  • harassment and abuse
  • working hours
  • compensation
  • freedom of association
  • environmental compliance

The Code of Conduct is applicable at all Electrolux locations and compliance is required of suppliers. To facilitate and support the introduction and monitoring of the Code of Conduct, the Group has developed ALFA, an electronic communication tool designed to support learning on the Code requirements, collecting exemplary and best practices and assessing the performance of operating units with regard to the Code.
