We are committed to maintaining high ethical standards within the supply chain.
Our Global Sourcing Code supports our commitment to respect human rights and uphold international standards, including the United Nations (“UN”) Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (“OECD”) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
Our commitment to respect human rights is based on the International Bill of Human Rights consisting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; and the International Labour Organisation’s (“ILO”) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
The Code details the minimum standards we expect our suppliers to adhere to and in turn ensure that their own business partners meet similar standards. Our Code covers expectations in the areas of environmental management, responsible sourcing of materials, safe working practices and human rights.
