Human rights

Respecting the dignity and human rights of all people is an integral part of how we do business. 

Our journey

Our work with human rights is an ongoing process, and our human rights due diligence programme ensures that we respect and advance human rights.

Take a look at our journey so far with a brief recap of our Values, Code of Conduct, Suppliers’ Code of Conduct, and our Human Rights Impact Assessments in China, Serbia, Mexico and India.

Our approach to human rights

We’re committed to upholding human rights and embedding these principles across our workplace culture, operations, supplier relationships and other partnerships. Our commitment to respecting human rights applies to all Grundfos employees in all Grundfos companies.

We respect human rights in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the UN Global Compact, and we conduct due diligence to identify, prevent, mitigate and remedy our actual and potential human rights impacts throughout our operations and business relationships.
