The Code of Conduct is divided into the following sections:

 

Supplier Code of Conduct

Supplier Code of Conduct

The Supplier Code of Conduct was updated and implemented in 2020. All of Haypp Group’s suppliers must fulfil the Supplier Code of Conduct. All of Haypp Group’s suppliers of oral nicotine products have either signed the Supplier Code of Conduct or have their own internal Code of Conducts setting out the same standards.

The Supplier Code of Conduct focuses on (i) safe products, (ii) taxes and other fees, (iii) working environment and human rights, (iv) anti-bribery and corruption and (v) environmental and climate innovation.

SAFE PRODUCTS
