Responsible sourcing

Managing the social and environmental impacts in our supply chain is part of our value chain approach to embedding corporate responsibility throughout our business.

Sustainable management of supply chains is of growing importance to our stakeholders, including customers and investors. We are highly engaged in human and labor rights aspects as well as anti-corruption issues in all business relations. We have long set social and environmental requirements for our suppliers, and we are driving several programs to manage this.

Supplier code of conduct audit program

The foundation of our Responsible Sourcing program is our Ericsson code of conduct, to which all suppliers must comply.
It covers four main areas: Human Rights, Labor Standards, Environment and Anti-Corruption.

Anti corruption

A key component of our Responsible Sourcing paradigm is our Supplier Anti-Corruption program. This program strongly focuses on ensuring our suppliers do not engage in corruptible behaviour or business practices.

Modern slavery

In Ericsson's Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement we describe how the Ericsson Group is tackling the challenge of modern slavery and human trafficking throughout its operations and supply chain, in line with the UK Modern Slavery Act.

Conflict minerals

Responsible management of raw materials in our supply chain includes the important issue of conflict minerals.

Contract compliance

Contract Compliance audits verify supplier's compliance to agreements signed with Ericsson. The audits help Ericsson to identify areas for improvement and help suppliers comply with the criteria.

Supplier Occupational and Health program

Our suppliers are required to provide a safe and healthy working environment as part of their business commitment to Ericsson. We have a number of ways to ensure our suppliers conform to Ericsson OHS requirements for example OHS consequence management program, supplier audits and awareness activities.
