Engaging with Suppliers

Sustainable Procurement​

The supply chain function contributes to the company’s sustainable development commitments by integrating sustainability issues into our processes and procedures. This incorporates sustainability thinking into sourcing, category management, our requisition-to-pay process, contracts, and material management programs.

Supply Chain
Integrating oversight on labor and human rights into our procurement processes and procedures includes recommended questions for supplier pre-qualification, bids and audits, as well as contract language. The questions and contracts directly address these issues and are based on our commitment to conduct our business consistent with the human rights philosophy expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work as described in our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct and our Supplier Expectations. We recognize slavery and human trafficking likely exist in every country. We are committed to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 and the United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act 2015
