Ethical rules

Our ethical rules should be a clear moral support for our member companies and their employees. The purpose of the rules is to provide a clear and clear picture of the laundries' views on their role in the labor market.

They should also clarify the companies' joint contribution to a good business ethic in business and a positive and environmentally friendly development in society. It is mandatory for companies authorized by the Swedish Laundry Association to comply with the ethical rules. The members' common key words are Competence, Quality, Environment and Social Responsibility.
