Profitable business

Supply Chain

Nordkalk’s preference is to use local suppliers; approximately 80 per cent of Nordkalk’s purchases take place in its countries of operations. The environmental impact of the short transportation distances is smaller and Nordkalk is better able to successfully monitor its supply chains.

Same rules apply to everyone

All purchasing for Nordkalk Group is performed complying with Nordkalk’s Purchasing Guidelines. When starting a contracting process with a new supplier, a supply evaluation process will be performed: The supplier’s background and reliability, ethical and financial, will be checked before the tender process can begin.

Suppliers are expected to commit to Nordkalk’s environmental care and sustainability requirements, a high standard of business ethics and integrity. A supplier is expected to comply with the requirements set out in Nordkalk’s Supply Code of Conduct, which the supplier is to sign as a part of the purchase agreement. Nordkalk expects all of its suppliers to work in the spirit of Nordkalk’s values – Openness, Fairness, Modesty, Trust and respect.
