Our programs

    We run a number of programs designed to improve the sustainability performance of our supply chain.
    • Supplier Sustainability Management

      Supplier Sustainability Management

      Reflecting our commitment to improve people’s lives, we perform assessments at our supplier sites to identify areas of improvement or change required to promote acceptable working conditions, environmentally responsible management and ethical behavior in our supply base.

    • Substances Management

      Substances Management

      As part of our commitment to health, safety and the environment, it is vitally important that our suppliers comply with all relevant requirements regarding the use of regulated substances.

    • Conflict Minerals

      Conflict Minerals

      For years the Democratic Republic of Congo has been plagued by a civil war fueled by money from the mining of so-called ‘conflict minerals’. We have taken action to ensure we are not helping to finance the conflict through the metals present in our products.

    • Carbon Disclosure

      Carbon Disclosure

      We are a member of the CDP Supply Chain program and encourage our suppliers to disclose carbon emissions and reduce their carbon footprint.
