Ethics and corporate responsibility
In all areas Gjensidige has high demands regarding business ethics. To employees involved in business relations special rules and guidelines apply.
Gjensidige's suppliers are asked to sign a declaration of corporate responsibility. In connection with all relevant procurement processes there is an addendum containing climate and environmental questions. Gjensidige is concerned about climate changes and attempt to collaborate with suppliers which are certified or have an expressed aim towards reducing climate changes and waste.
Many suppliers deliver services directly to those of our customers who have been exposed to damage. These are especially valuable and important suppliers and we regard it as an important task to select the right ones. These suppliers are in every aspect Gjensidige's extended arm in connection to claims settlements.
Electronic B2B tools simplify and accommodate for compliance with corporate procurement policy and main strategy for procurement. The Company uses Mercell and Contiki for sourcing and contract management and Basware Purchase Management and Invoice Processing for ordering and paying. There are no electronic gaps in the procurement process. We aim to be among the best when it comes to applying and utilizing e-Procurement tools. We believe that this gives us a leverage in quality and efficiency in all stages of the procurement process.
