K Code of Conduct

The K Code of Conduct outlines the shared guidelines for the work of each Kesko employee and business partners.

Kesko wishes to lead the way in responsibility and our stakeholders also hold us to a high standard. This demand for responsibility reaches every area of Kesko operations.

We expect all Kesko employees and business partners to properly internalise the K Code of Conduct. The K Code of Conduct contains 12 principles, and clear examples lay out what is expected of Kesko employees and business partners for example in the areas of human rights, environmental care and fair competition.



Kesko has prepared a mandatory eLearning package for its employees to smoothly internalise the K Code of Conduct.

The K Code of Conduct has been published in all the languages of Kesko’s operating countries: Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Estonian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Russian and Polish.

Kesko employees and business partners have their own versions of the K Code of Conduct:

personnel guide

business partner's guide

The K Code of Conduct replaces the previous Our Responsible Working Principles guide.
