Logo IEH Ethical-Trading-Initiativ

Bergans has been a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (IEH) since 2009. The IEH is a resource center and a driving force for ethical trade. Its goal is to strengthen its members’ work through the promotion of acceptable working and environmental conditions throughout the supplier chain.

Our membership in the Ethical Trading Initiative Norway (IEH) obliges us to adopt a Code of Conduct (CoC) that comprises a number of principles. The IEH monitors and verifies that our CoC complies with its requirements. The IEH also assists us with courses, templates and tips for monitoring our suppliers. The network provides us with excellent opportunities to collaborate with other industry players. There are now several of us working together, boosting our level of impact and improving our chances of success.

Each year we submit a report on our ethical trade initiatives to the IEH. Feel free to download a copy of our report here if you would like more detailed information on what we do: IEH report
