Our code of conduct forms the basis of corporate social responsibility at Burg Groep. This document is a translation of our company values into guidelines to be followed during our day-to-day operations. Together with our company values, the code of conduct reflects who we are, what we stand for, what we are aiming to achieve and how we go about doing this. All Burg Groep employees are familiar with the content of our code of conduct and act in full compliance with the guidelines.

Supplier requirements

As well as being a set of guidelines for our organisation, the code of conduct forms the basis upon which to set expectations for external parties. This enables us to extend the impact of our efforts in the field of corporate social responsibility. Our code of conduct follows the internationally recognised principles of the United Nations Global Compact. We conduct ourselves according to these principles and ask our suppliers to do the same or to act in compliance with similar principles. By doing so, we are aiming to directly and indirectly contribute to better living and working conditions, improved food safety, healthier food, a reduced environmental impact and honest trading practices.
