Reporting to the ESG Steering Committee is the ESG working group, comprising representatives of the various divisions and responsible for executing tasks including risk and opportunity assessments, scenario analysis and planning.


Code of Conduct

Employees and business partners including, suppliers and dealers, are expected to comply with the law and the highest standards of honest and ethical conduct. DAF expects its dealers to have there own compliance program, with audits in place.

Employees receive ongoing training on conducting business with integrity. This focuses on aspects like human rights, ethical business practice, financial integrity, global trade compliance, interaction with stakeholders, health and safety, and commitment to reduce our impact on the environment. The PACCAR Code of Conduct also details how employees can anonymously report code violations through a hotline and clarifies DAF’s non-retaliation policy.

PACCAR Code of Conduct

Attention for and by our supply chain

Suppliers are selected based on many factors, including quality, innovation, cost, financial viability, and regulatory compliance. All suppliers must exhibit the highest ethical principles of the Code of Conduct, including those related to anti-bribery, antitrust and fair competition, trade compliance, and business ethics. DAF’s long term supply management vision is focused on value sourcing and the strategic management of five key areas:

  • Quality: suppliers’ production processes must conform to PACCAR’s quality requirements, drawn up in accordance with ISO and IATF standards.
  • Logistics: to deliver new trucks (and aftermarket parts) on time to our customers, reliable shipments from suppliers are essential.
  • Know How: to stay up to date with developments, we expect suppliers to share their technology and know-how of new products and future systems.
  • Competitive Position & Total Cost: our suppliers are expected to submit ideas to improve products & processes that help optimize costs, quality and functionality.
  • Continuous Improvement & Sustainability: working with suppliers on continuous improvement helps us produce the best quality trucks in the most efficient, cost-effective way. This leads to optimal use of resources, contributing to sustainability.

In 2024, the Supplier Code of Conduct will be updated in alignment with the DAF framework.
