Since April 2019, our suppliers are expected to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct which sets out our standards, values and principles. Sustainability-related questions are included in all our tenders and have a bearing on the overall scoring and selection process. We are now looking to create greater transparency around the ESG performance of our suppliers, and of their own supply chains. To support this, we are partnering with EcoVadis, a global sustainability rating company, to conduct individual sustainability performance assessments of our supply chain partners.
We have started to invite our critical suppliers because we want to better understand the alignment between how their business operates, and our sustainability goals. By registering on the EcoVadis platform and undertaking their sustainability assessment, our suppliers will receive a sustainability scorecard from EcoVadis with detailed insights into their strengths, along with any areas for improvement. The assessment results will also be integrated into our sourcing and supplier review processes.
