We aim to create an environment where we can build strong, sustainable, and long-term partnerships, and promote responsible business practices by working with our suppliers across the value chain. To do so, we implemented our Supplier Code of Conduct, setting the minimum standards of business conduct.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct describes monitoring and enforcement processes, as well as protocols for addressing a breach or suspected breach and reinstatement criteria that suppliers are expected to meet.
We have zero tolerance for:
- Child labour;
- Forced labour;
- An environment that incites or encourages any form of coercion and harassment;
- Any major health and safety deficiency posing immediate danger to life or risk of serious injury;
- Any major environmental deficiency posing serious and immediate harm to the environment or the community;
- Any form of animal cruelty; and;
- Any form of bribery.
Throughout FY21, we continued the implementation of our Supplier Code of Conduct through the introduction of a more formal risk assessment and proactive checks such as audits to ensure compliance.
