Why agreements? 6 billion Euro
The primary purpose of the agreements is to ensure that all interaction between health enterprise employees, suppliers to the health sector generally and the pharmaceutical industry in particular, and other health sector suppliers proceeds in a professionally and ethically correct manner. Ethical trade is the sum of efforts companies make to ensure that the goods they purchase are
produced in accordance with internationally recognized standards relating to working
conditions and environmental considerations.
Norwegian hospitals purchase for more than six billion Euro every year and they all set
requirements to ethical supply chains.
Our Board 10.12.2009: The South­Eastern Norway Regional
Health Authority shall be a driving
force for ethical trading and
undertakes to set requirements for
an ethical supply chain wherever
this is a relevant issue.

Standards make it easier for all parts
Use the ILO conventions and national laws
Public procures should share their results
Start by checking the suppliers systems, not a far­distant factory
Demand improvements and cooperation, not guarantees
Be reasonable and predictable
Not ”compliance or die”, but ”cooperation or no new contract…”
Communicate the importance from the top level management
AND: Following up etichal demands as a integrated part of generell following up of the supplier contract
What was important for the supplier? • Dialogue

how you handle the findings»

Fair competition
• Supplier number 1 – Control of supply chain
according to human rights and working
conditions
• Supplier number 2 – Do not care about these
issues
• Is it fair competition to treat them equally?
Thank you!
