At Nobina, we are proud of the processes and partnerships we have. Through careful preparation, we always look for stable partners and suppliers who, like us, are passionate about developing public transport in different ways. To become a supplier to us, they must stand for the values we represent, so we clarify our demands at an early stage in the process. We have developed a routine for monitoring the requirements by holding the meeting agenda updated with sustainability issues to the recurring meetings we have with the suppliers. We are also conducting sustainability audits at their place. Our requirements are clarified in the following code of conduct.



The Nobina Group is the largest and most experienced public transport operator in the Nordic region. Nobina daily secures people coming to work, school and activities by delivering contracted public transport on behalf of the public in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. In addition, Nobina offers express bus services in Swebus on the Swedish market. The Group is the industry leader in terms of profitability, development and promoters to a healthier industry.

Goods and services delivered and provided to Nobina shall be made in both durable and responsible terms. Suppliers and partners should therefore work according to documented procedures aimed at ensuring that the production of the goods delivered takes place under conditions consistent with the following rules.

Our expectation

Suppliers and partners to Nobina, need to have as a starting point a documented work that should be well-established throughout the organization, about sustainability and the aspects that are attributable to the specified regulations. There must be documented and established control or target documents or policies, management decisions, strategies or equivalent that concern sustainability based on these perspectives.

The supplier must comply with the principles of the UN Global Compact, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the ILO Declaration on
