Among other things, our responsible procurement policy commits us to:
- engaging with suppliers to determine the sustainability of goods and services we purchase;
- using sustainability criteria in the awarding of contracts;
- avoiding causing or contributing to adverse human rights impacts, and address such impacts where they occur;
- purchasing goods and services that comply with local laws relating to environmental protection, occupational health and safety, non-discrimination and the protection of internationally recognised human rights.
All our suppliers are requested to conform with our procurement compliance standards and have their own internal policies and procedures in place to ensure they are able to share our commitment to the areas set out within it.
