The need for transparent, sustainable supply chains is growing as more organisations, including many of our customers, are demanding this approach in order to better understand and secure their business and manage reputational risks.

The launch of the G4 guidelines by Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) in 2013 has given further momentum to organisations to develop sustainability management policies that include not just their own operations, but also address impacts throughout the whole supply chain.

We are guided by the principles of the UN Global Compact in engaging with our suppliers and, as a long-term commitment and goal, achieving sustainability across our value chain. We believe that sustainable supply-chain management can be a strong driver of value and success – for us as much as for the communities in which we operate and from whom we source our raw material, and for all our stakeholders.

By spreading good business practices around the globe, a sustainable supply chain has great potential to contribute to more-inclusive markets and advance accountability and sustainable development.
