K Code of Conduct

The purpose of the K Code of Conduct is to support and guide the choices and decisions made within K Group. With the code, we ensure that all employees within K Group, K-retailers, and K Group’s business partners have a common understanding of the guiding rules and principles we follow.

The K Code of Conduct is published in all languages of our operating countries. The code is available as two versions: one for the employees of K Group, the other for business partners. 

The K Code of Conduct, common to the whole K Group, serves as a guide for sustainable business practices and as a reference for the corporate culture of doing the right thing for Kesko, K-retailers, and their personnel.

We also expect our business partners to operate sustainably. All our business partners must transparently demonstrate their commitment to responsible business practices. Accordingly, the K Code of Conduct for Business partners is not merely a guide for K Group’s business partners but also forms a binding component of any contract entered into with a company affiliated with K Group.

K Code of Conduct is available in all languages of our operating countries here.
