Being active in the healthcare industry with global operations, STILLE has an obligation to operate in an ethically responsible manner in every facet of its business. To achieve this goal, it is vital that we have clear guidelines as well as a comprehensive compliance program in place. Such a program adds value to our company by offering clear guidance to our employees, customers, and other valued stakeholders, and thus helps reduce our risk levels and enhance business performance.
STILLE’s vision of being the first choice of surgeons around the world cannot be achieved without the trust of our essential stakeholders—from customers and the patients who rely on our products to our employees, shareholders, and government authorities. This Code of Conduct is essential to the task of creating and maintaining that trust. It is a fundamental expression of the professionalism that we strive for throughout our business and the personal integrity we expect of our employees.
Our Code of Conduct is based on our corporate core values and internationally accepted principles, reaffirming our support for human rights, fair labor practices and the environment, including:
The UN Declaration of Human Rights (www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/)
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (www.unicef.org/crc)
The UN Global Compact (www.unglobalcompact.org)
ILO Principles and Rights at Work, including but not limited to conventions 29, 87, 98, 100, 105, 111, 138 och 182 (www.ilo.org/ilolex/english/convdisp1.htm)
