A structured dialogue with suppliers and the Supplier Code of Conduct from Sedex (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) should help in this respect. The Sedex supplier code sets out the shared responsibilities of suppliers with regard to the purchasing of raw materials. It includes standards on business ethics aimed at preventing bribery, discrimination, corruption and fraudulent business practices, and employment practices that comply with ILO standards. Relationships with suppliers who do not wish to work in accordance with the Sedex code will be phased out."
