At Enwave Energy Corporation we believe that the company and its subsidiaries (“Enwave”) have both an ethical and a business imperative to be responsible corporate citizens. This includes establishing a set of minimum standards of conduct for suppliers of goods and services to Enwave. Enwave wants to do business with suppliers that share our commitment to corporate responsibility. Building off the Principles of the UN Global Compact, this document sets out the standards by which Enwave expects its suppliers to conduct their business.
In addition to complying with applicable laws and regulations in the countries where they do business, and applicable contractual obligations, suppliers to Enwave are expected to meet the following standards:
