We believe that our supply chain relationships are key to delivering best-in-class materials, services and solutions and as such, we work hard to ensure our partners satisfy and exceed our exacting standards and performance expectations, share our values and understand and support our commitments.
We recognise the importance of good corporate citizenship and support the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact, a United Nations standard for responsible business designed to promote respect for human rights, labour rights, the environment and to support the elimination of corruption. We conduct our business in a manner that is ethically beyond reproach and urge our business partners to also abide by this principle.
Running a responsible supply chain is an important strategic challenge for us. Despite the associated commercial pressures, we strive to ensure that we integrate corporate responsibility into our decision-making processes and continuously seek opportunities to improve the way in which we manage our environmental and social impact. We are committed to delivering an innovative, dynamic and professional procurement service with high level commitments and objectives set out in our Procurement Policy.
