Decent work and economic growth

A responsible employer offers equal opportunities

Uponor’s Code of Conduct applies to all Uponorians and ensures that we do our job in a lawful and ethical manner. In 2019, we launched an easy to use Code of Conduct eLearning module with practical exercises to make the Code of Conduct more approachable and easier to understand. Our aim is that all personnel will complete the eLearning module
every other year.

We support employees’ continued development by providing each employee with a variety of opportunities to support their continued professional development through on-the-job learning, learning from others and more traditional methods, such as classroombased studies and eLearning. Furthermore, as competent leaders are the key to the successful execution of our strategy, we strive to provide unique career paths and offer leadership development programmes.

We respect human rights and follow the guidelines of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We do not allow child or forced labour or engage suppliers that do so. We aim that all our suppliers meet our ethical, social, environmental and quality standards, and comply with the applicable international and national laws and regulations. We evaluate and audit existing and new suppliers according to these principles.
