AM Nutrition –
AM Nutrition (AMN) is based on values that oblige us to be responsible in all our actions. Therefore, we have our own ethical guidelines for our business. Our customers must be confident that AMN contributes to the same values that are used as a basis when we purchase goods and services. That is why we have developed ethical guidelines for AMN’s partners and customers. The guidelines are based on principles developed by the Initiative for Ethical Trade (IEH) and strengthen fundamental principles that are enshrined in international conventions. Since 2017 AMN has been a member of Sedex, one of the world’s leading ethical trade membership organisation working with businesses to improve working conditions in global supply chains.
Sustainability is an integrated part of our business reinforced by the vision of AMN; The natural and sustainable way.
AMN emphasizes the ability to implement improvements in line with ethical
guidelines. Partners and customers who report gaps between our ethical requirements and their actual status, does not necessarily mean that they are excluded as our partner. If the partner assumes a willingness to implement improvement measures, this will be an important criterion for further cooperation.

What is whistleblowing? It means that if you discover intolerable conditions in connection with AMN’s business, you report to someone who can do something about it.
When you discover serious circumstances, a number of conflicts arise such as your own interests – including your future at AMN – and the organization’s future reputation. On the other hand, you have a professional responsibility to your superiors.
It is AMN’s responsibility to ensure that whistleblowers are not subjected to internal penalties, either directly or indirectly. However, individuals who give notice for no reason or to harm the organization or another person risk disciplinary action.
The reporting should preferably be done in writing. This is the best way to document an alert. It is important to have clear facts and be as sure as possible of having interpreted the facts correctly.
Do you want to file a complaint? Contact your manager for guidance or questions about anti-corruption on a daily basis. In cases where the nature of the complaint makes it impractical or inappropriate to go via the manager, the information can instead be communicated to the safety representative (Verneombud), HSEQ manager, human resources department, general manager or firstname.lastname@example.org
