Why does Lego believe it is important to care about employees of its partners?
The third policy within this category is the responsible supplier management policy. This policy focuses on making sure that employees who work for Lego’s suppliers are treated well. Lego makes all business partners sign a code of conduct which goes over employees health and safety, working conditions and so on. They then monitor how compliant the business partners are by monitoring them by employing third-party auditors. Alongside making business partners sign a code of conduct, they provide their business partners with training and provide them with capacity building. This is one of Legos smaller CSR policies however it gives them just as big a competitive edge as some other policies. It will help give them a good reputation as they will further be known as environmentally friendly and will be shown to care for business partners. This will improve their reputation and will furthermore encourage consumers to use Lego over competitors.
