2)      Suppliers:

  • All new suppliers are subject to a selection process established within our Central Procurement policy or other form of due diligence which sufficiently assesses propriety.
  • Most of our new suppliers’ contracts require adherence to the ten principles of the United Nation Global Compact or the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
  • We reserve the rights to audit most of our suppliers to ensure their adherence with the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact or the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
