      "Trees are one of the planet’s most powerful solutions to climate change because they capture and store carbon. However, deforestation and land use change accounts for 10% of the world’s global emissions and continues to occur at an alarming rate. Most of the forest clearing can be attributed to four crops: palm oil, beef, soybean, and paper and wood products. That’s why we’re working with our suppliers to investigate those supply chains and the origins of the materials we source."

Based on the initial screening, a Supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire may be used to further analyze Suppliers who are initially designated as medium or higher risk. This may come directly from Campbell or a third-party vendor under direction from Campbell. Supplier is responsible for completing the questionnaire accurately and within 30 days.

In all cases, we expect our Suppliers to comply with all applicable legal requirements.

The guidelines set forth here are the minimum required and Suppliers are encouraged to exceed the requirements set forth in this Code... Any Supplier may be subject to a Responsible Sourcing audit at any time, but our program is designed to allocate audit resources based on risk. This will allow us to make the biggest impact in mitigating risks in our supply chain. The risk category assigned to a Supplier in Step 1 above will determine the requirements of Supplier under our Responsible Sourcing Audit Program... If it is determined that Supplier is required to undergo a Responsible Sourcing audit, Supplier shall use the third-party audit firm as selected by Campbell. We will, however, be willing to discuss mutual recognition of audits performed within the previous 180 days according to globally-recognized frameworks such as SMETA and by fully-qualified organizations. We will also accept SA8000 certification. It is expected that Supplier will fully cooperate and provide auditors with the appropriate records requested and allow for confidential interviews in connection with the audits."

The first part will take into consideration a variety of factors including Supplier’s country, industry specific risks and a Supplier’s compliance management systems. Based on the initial screening, a Supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire may be used to further analyze Suppliers who are initially designated as medium or higher risk. This may come directly from Campbell or a third-party vendor under direction from Campbell. Supplier is responsible for completing the questionnaire accurately and within 30 days. Based on these assessments, each Supplier will be designated as lower, medium, or higher risk. All new suppliers will receive an initial assessment before becoming a Campbell Supplier and Suppliers may be subject to re-assessment annually."
