We expect our suppliers to acknowledge and implement standards of conduct in line with our Code of Ethics as in integral part of our contractual relationship. The lack of compliance with these principles leads to the termination of the contract. Furthermore, we pay particular attention to our supply chain, outlining, through the Code of Supplier Conduct, our expectations towards our business partners.

The Code of Supplier Conduct describes the values that guide the partnership between Itema and its suppliers: passion for excellence, ethically responsible behavior, acknowledgment, respect for human and labor rights, foresight and transparency.
