We expect our Suppliers to be ethical, responsible and to fully adhere to the principles set out in this Code in addition to the provisions of any commercial terms agreed between our agencies and the Supplier and all applicable laws and regulations of the countries in which they operate.
The Code is applicable to all Suppliers, partners and affiliates who supply products or services related to contracts or purchase orders. Suppliers are expected to have and maintain practices similar to those in the Code and must apply these standards to the Suppliers they work with.
We expect our Suppliers to be ethical, responsible and to fully comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
All Suppliers must comply with applicable international and national laws and standards in relation to labour practices and human rights:
Fair Treatment and Equal Opportunity
We recognize the need to reward fairly for skill, contribution and performance. We want our workplace to be a place of mutual trust and respect, which embraces diversity and values everyone for their merits where people are treated fairly and consistently. Suppliers must not discriminate in hiring, compensation, access to training, promotion, termination or retirement based upon (but not limited to) race, national origin, religion, age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, union membership or political affiliation.
