          "To ensure the integrity and sustainability of our value chain, we require suppliers to adhere to our Code of Conduct for Business Partners (CoC), which sets out our expectations for anti-corruption, data privacy and human and labor rights, among other practices. Compliance with the CoC or agreed equivalent is a requirement of working with us. We include the CoC when requesting quotes from suppliers and embed it within Terms & Conditions of purchase orders. As of June 2021, 459✓ business partners had signed the CoC. We now use the Ariba tool to ensure business partners sign through an efficient and automated process, with a monthly report to ensure adherence is respected and monitored. We use several tools to manage the risk of supplier non-compliance with the CoC. Supplier sites are subject to a comprehensive risk assessment, which identifies the risks of non-compliance. Low and medium risk sites are required to provide evidence of their sustainability performance using either the SEDEX self-assessment questionnaire, or the EcoVadis 360° ESG assessment. For high-risk sites, suppliers are subject to an independent third-party site audit. Suppliers found to have poor performance through these screenings are supported to improve their practices through corrective action plans which set clear timelines for expected improvement."

          "To ensure the integrity and sustainability of our value chain, we require suppliers to adhere to our Code of Conduct for Business Partners (CoC), which sets out our expectations for anti-corruption, data privacy and human and labor rights, among other practices. Compliance with the CoC or agreed equivalent is a requirement of working with us. We include the CoC when requesting quotes from suppliers and embed it within Terms & Conditions of purchase orders. As of June 2021, 459✓ business partners had signed the CoC. We now use the Ariba tool to ensure business partners sign through an efficient and automated process, with a monthly report to ensure adherence is respected and monitored. We use several tools to manage the risk of supplier non-compliance with the CoC. Supplier sites are subject to a comprehensive risk assessment, which identifies the risks of non-compliance. Low and medium risk sites are required to provide evidence of their sustainability performance using either the SEDEX self-assessment questionnaire, or the EcoVadis 360° ESG assessment. For high-risk sites, suppliers are subject to an independent third-party site audit. Suppliers found to have poor performance through these screenings are supported to improve their practices through corrective action plans which set clear timelines for expected improvement."
