Spilka's social responsibility

Respect for human rights and the environment is an integral part of Spilka's values base. Spilka respects the human rights of all individuals and groups that may be affected by our operations. This includes employees, contractors, suppliers, agencies, partners, communities, and those affected by the use and disposal of our products.

Respecting human rights is part of Spilka’s Code of Conduct, with which we expect all of our employees to comply. Spilka’s Code of Conduct is approved and owned by Spilka’s Board of Directors.

We have set minimum requirements relating to human rights to our suppliers. These are stated in Spilkas Code of Conduct. The content is based on the international conventions on working conditions and the environment which are incorporated into the legislation of most countries. We expect all our employees to follow these guidelines.

We at Spilka have a good overview of our supply chain, and we expect our suppliers to comply and promote the principles set out in the Spilka Code of Conduct in their own supply chain.

Spilka works continuously to improve social justice and reduce the environmental impact throughout our value chain, and has a good system for following up on our suppliers.

Our differences matter

Diversity, inclusion and belonging at Spilka

Our 75 employees are a diverse group. We believe that diversity and inclusion lead to more innovation, a learning culture, better customer understanding and higher financial results. It also makes us a better workplace.

The UN's sustainability goals put people at the centre, and diversity, inclusion and belonging are important key points to help us be a sustainable company.

Diversity includes what we as individuals have no control over, such as age, gender, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation and personality, and what we can control, such as education, work background, language, cultural experience and so on. Our diversity means that we can think differently, approach challenges differently and solve problems differently

To ensure that our differences constitute a valuable competitive force, we depend on inclusive leadership and a culture where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Inclusion is the environment we create so that all individuals can contribute to their full potential. Belonging is the feeling that the individual's contribution matters.

This is one of our core values: We are one Spilka.

Each and everyone is an important puzzle piece in what makes up the whole of Spilka

Code of Conduct

Our ethical guidelines together with applicable laws and regulations provide the framework for what we consider to be responsible business conduct.

The Ethics Code of Conduct describes Spilka's commitment and requirements in connection with issues of an ethical nature that relate to business practice and personal conduct. The Ethics Code of Conduct applies to the organisation and to its individual employees, board members, hired personnel, consultants, intermediaries and others who act on Spilka's behalf.

We expect our employees to act responsibly with their colleagues, business partners and society. We are committed to act in accordance with all relevant laws and regulations. Fighting corruption is part of our social responsibility – we do not tolerate corruption in the private or public sector.

Being a responsible business partner means that we continuously engage, influence and work with our suppliers and business associates. The requirements cover issues related to environment, human rights, anti-corruption and working conditions, and are built upon the UN Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and other international standards.

We interact with a variety of stakeholders, including our customers, competitors, suppliers, ​business partners, representatives, authorities, and local communities. We are committed to interacting with all of these groups in an ethical and legal manner, always demonstrating​ integrity in everything we do.​

UN's Global Compact

In addition to the company’s ethical guidelines, the principles of the UN Global Compact are placed at the core of the company’s activities.

The UN Global Compact is based on ten principles related to human rights, employment standards, the environment and anticorruption.

”The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.” (https://www.unglobalcompact.or...)

Spilka supports these principles and uses them as the basis for its operations. It is important for Spilka as an international company that «third parties» (including agents, suppliers, distributors) are also conversant with these principles and base their activities on them. This is Spilka's aim in its monitoring and dialogue with third parties.
