Working with business partners

Our success is dependent upon the cooperation from our business partners – suppliers, customers, contractors, agents, distributors, consultants or joint venture partners and others.

Business partners

Our business partners are expected to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Business partners that have a direct contractual relationship with Hydro have to adhere to the principles set out in Hydro's Supplier Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards in key areas including business ethics and anti-corruption, as well as human rights, labor conditions and sustainability for Hydro’s suppliers.

Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the termination of the business relationship.

We carry out risk-based integrity due diligence processes to ensure that the business partners’ reputation, background and abilities meet our standards. That way we try to ensure business integrity in our value chain.
