Our suppliers and partners are an important part of our value chain, as they provide us with the products and services we need, to deliver our solutions to our customers. Our relationship with our third parties also brings responsibilities, such as shared concern for the environmental impact of our supply chain and potential social and compliance risks if these factors are not managed appropriately.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets out our expectations of suppliers, which are based on the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Core Conventions and UN Global Compact’s 10 principles for sustainable development.
