Supporting our suppliers
Our suppliers play a vital role in supporting our business activities, and our reputation depends on the quality of the services they deliver. For this reason we work closely with our trading partners to ensure they share our values. Our supplier relationships are founded on collaboration and respect – as borne out in our industry-leading payment record.
We expect our suppliers to comply with all applicable national and international regulations. This includes legislation relating to working hours, wages, welfare and human rights – along with the principles outlined in the International Labour Organisation’s Core Conventions.
Key trades must agree to work to strict targets based on our health, safety, environmental and people development objectives. In this regard, we believe in supporting our partners through training and knowledge-sharing, and hold regular forums to communicate clear expectations.
