Our process for collaboration
Energinet's Code of Conduct outlines our expectations to our suppliers and business partners. It is the foundation of collaboration, where all suppliers and business partners are expected to make a positive impact in the social, ethical and environmental area.
Energinet expects all suppliers and business partners to complete a self-assessment, after the contract has been signed, the purpose of which is to ensure compliance in the area of human rights, labor rights, environmental impacts and anti-corruption.
Constructive and solution-oriented approach is at centre of the dialogue when it comes to follow-up on the self-assessment. We expect our suppliers and business partners to demonstrate the ability and willingness to establish a process of ongoing due diligence and take active responsibility as described in our Code of Conduct.
Based on risk assessment, we continuously monitor our suppliers and business partners compliance with our Code of Conduct.
