Our Code of Conduct serves as a foundation for supply chain responsibility, but our efforts go far beyond establishing and communicating expectations. We have developed a rigorous approach to training, monitoring, auditing and working with suppliers, all geared towards continuous improvement.

On a quarterly basis, we review overall performance of suppliers (which includes evaluating and providing feedback on CSR performance), to determine ongoing business strategies and allocation. Overall strong performance is rewarded with more business when all other requirements are met. As CSR is part of the business strategy, suppliers have incentives to improve human rights and environmental management.
