We recognize that an effective and efficient supply chain is essential to our success. That’s why we apply significant rigor to choosing the right partners using systematic and integrated processes to select, develop, and manage our supplier base.
We work with our suppliers in a socially responsible and ethical manner and are continuously looking for ways to improve how we run our business. Our focus is to procure the right products and services at the right time and at the lowest total cost of ownership, in line with Our Guiding Principles .
Crucially, we want our partners to join us and contribute to our journey to net zero. Sustainability is not only expected by our immediate stakeholders; it is an urgent imperative for the world.
