REGA for partners

Rega for Partners

WHAT DOES REGA MEAN FOR YOU AS A PARTNER?

As a supplier or other partner to a REGA company, you will experience a partner that has a high degree of transparency about the company’s operations and priorities.

In short, your partner has joined the UN Global Compact – the United Nations’ initiative on corporate sustainability – and that they comply with the minimum standards of corporate conduct, namely the UN’s Human Rights and Business Guidelines, and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

When negotiating contracts with a REGA company, you will be required to implement the UN and OECD minimum standards for responsible business conduct. You will, therefore, be asked to do the same as your customer or business partner – no more, no less.

This does not mean that all contracts must be reassessed at once. When it is time to renegotiate existing contracts and when entering into new contracts, you will be required to start work on complying with the UN and OECD guidelines within the coming period.

WHEN DO I NEED TO HAVE EVERYTHING IN ORDER?

You can read much more on this website about what corporate social responsibility means and what you as a company must do in order to comply with the UN and OECD guidelines.

You can also always ask your REGA-partner for good advice to get started.

When you renegotiate or enter into new contracts with a REGA partner, you must agree when you will show that you have also taken steps to comply with the UN and OECD guidelines.

Typically, you should be able to demonstrate that you have begun the process within a year of a contract being signed. However, it is a job that takes time and you will implement the management systems you need to have in place over a number of years.
