MøllerGruppen has developed its own Code of Conduct to clarify our business guide lines and implemented internal processes to spread the message. We have also established clear routines for Whistleblowing. If employees suspect or witness unacceptable circumstances, it is important that they say about this.
MøllerGruppen is a company with traditions. Our strong foundation was established in 1936 by our founder, Harald Aars Moller. The core of our business ethics is based on his maxim: "Keep to the straight and narrow road"
This is a timeless expectation for all of us in MøllerGruppen. The living rule forms the basis of our core values that describe the attitudes that should characterize MøllerGruppen and how we work together to build a valuable and rewarding community.
Our core values are:
• HONEST & TRUSTWORTHY
• OPEN MINDED AND CARING
Our Code of Conduct takes us further from our core values and over into the concrete business world where all employees should have an equal basis in order to make safe and appropriate choices. MøllerGruppen grows and has operations in five countries; Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. This requires a good foundation and daily vigilance and our ambition is to be best and largest in our markets. We will achieve this through hard work with a high degree of integrity and without challenging ethical guidelines and good business practice. This means that all employees in our organization will do their best to make decisions that are justifiable for MøllerGruppen, the customers, the community - and themselves.
We have also joined the UN Global Compact. Global Compact is the UN's principles for responsible business, based on ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption, standards all responsible companies should follow. By joining the Global Compact the companies emphasize that one does its best to conduct its business in line with the ten principles.
At the end of 2015, the total number of employees in MøllerGruppen was 4107 - an increase of 181 over the year. Sweden had 652 employees, the three Baltic countries totaling 649 and in Norway there are 2806 employees.
