Internal implementation of the Code
All employees are obliged to observe and comply with Husqvarna Group’s Code of Conduct, available on the corporate website in English and in 13 languages on the intranet. Sub-guidelines explaining some parts of the Code in detail are also available internally.
As it is likely that an employee may not feel comfortable with using standard grievance possibilities in existing reporting lines, Husqvarna Group has engaged an external service provider for operating a grievance mechanism (internally referred to as the AlertLine). The AlertLine can be accessed world-wide (24h) through telephone and email.
In 2015, a total of 86 internal labor practice compliance reports were logged, whereof 78 were in North America, 4 in Europe and 4 in Rest of the World.
