Let’s Be Transparent

Value Chain & Suppliers

Our dedication to maintaining a sustainable supply chain starts with honesty and transparency.


Long-term Partnerships

At Viking, we value the long-term relationships we have with our suppliers. We actively seek like-minded partners and believe that great things can happen when people join together to pursue a common purpose. As of 2020, 77% of our partner collaborations are over 10 years old, and 33% of our partner collaborations have been in place for a period of 30 years or longer. 

Viking has operated with open supplier lists since 2016. The collaboration between Viking and our suppliers is based on transparency and close communication. Here we can address challenges and opportunities in the value chain. You can see our 1-tier value chain here.


BSCI Audits

Since 2003, amfori BSCI has empowered companies to improve their social performance within their supply chains and create meaningful and impactful change. At Viking, we initiate annual BSCI audits at our manufacturing facilities. 

BSCI audits at Viking manufacturing facilities address the following topics, which include Viking’s Code of Conduct, as well as internationally recognized conventions (UN and ILO)

  • Responsible Social Management Systems
  • The Involvement and Protection of Workers
  • The Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining 
  • Discrimination Free Work Place
  • Fair Remuneration 
  • Decent Working Hours 
  • Occupational Health and Safety 
  • Ban of the use of Child Labour 
  • Special Protection for Young Workers. 
  • Ethical Employment Standards 
  • Ban of the use of Bonded Labour 
  • Protection of the Environment 


Ethical Business Behaviour 

Upon review, if any areas are found to be below satisfactory in evaluation, immediate action is taken to course-correct the matter. Audits are then performed 3-6 months later to determine if improvements have been successful. As BSCI reports become available, it is routine to review these reports with members of factory management, in addition to on-site visits by members of Viking’s product department.
