The code has been developed by Amfori BSCI, a world-leading initiative for social responsibility and sustainable working conditions for suppliers within cultivation and production. It is based on international conventions on human rights from the UN and other bodies.

Vinmonopolet and the other Nordic monopolies use the Amfori BSCI Code of Conduct to require that basic human rights and international standards for working conditions are followed throughout our value chain.

Our Code of Conduct forms part of Vinmonopolet’s general purchasing conditions and requires all actors to take responsibility. Our suppliers - Norwegian wholesale companies - are the ones with whom Vinmonopolet has direct agreements. The wholesalers in turn must ensure that their suppliers and sub-suppliers comply with our requirements.
