Due diligence / Risk assessment
Sustainable Procurement is an integrated value in our supply chain management. We seek to trade with suppliers who match and complement our ethical standards and organisational values whilst seeking to minimise the environmental impacts arising from the delivery of their goods or services. We are committed to the following:
- Mapping the supply chain to assess particular product or geographical risks
- Evaluating the modern slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier
- Ensuring all new suppliers accept our Code of Conduct policy prior to being on boarded as a supplier
- Reviewing on a regular basis all aspects of the supply chain
- Taking steps to improve sub-standard suppliers’ practices
- Entering into business relationships with suppliers that reflect our organisational values.
- Work with our suppliers to ensure that they drive ethical and sustainable business practices throughout their organisations
- We particularly focus on the environmental impact of our supply chain and partners and work hard to reduce the combined carbon footprint
Supplier responses are taken into consideration when short-listing and we make any concerns known to the supplier. Should suppliers fail to live up to our expectations or be unwilling to make any changes we may cease to engage with them.
