Upholding family values is one of five cornerstones which flow through our working practices. It means we’re committed to promoting a collaborative working environment, high ethical standards and a positive inclusive culture.
We must act as a socially-responsible organisation to ensure legal compliance, manage reputational risk and to promote ethical trading practices as a core part of conducting business with our suppliers.
In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in the ethical expectations of businesses, and sustainability performance (whether social, environmental or economic) can have a significant impact on a company’s reputation.
As our supplier we expect you to protect your workers rights, promote good working conditions and support our approach to fostering positive relationships in supply chains.
Ethical, safe and legal practices should be established throughout your business, and the subjects of regular employment, working hours, wages, child labour, working conditions, discrimination, freedom of association and freedom from intimidation should be covered within your ethical policy.
Your performance will be actively monitored through assessments, to make sure our values and minimum standards are being followed and met throughout your business.
