Sustainability clauses are included in supplier contracts to ensure they are contractually obliged to meet the standards set out by our:
Strategic and higher risk suppliers undergo sustainability assessments with independent supply chain experts, EcoVadis. This process helps us identify and manage risk in our supply chain effectively.
If a supplier is found to be non-compliant with our sustainability clauses, or has been identified as medium or high risk supplier, we work with them to improve performance. We reserve the right to terminate a contract if suppliers fail to implement recommended improvement plans.
