Managing sustainability impacts and risks in the supply chain
Our responsibility towards society and environment extends to those we influence through our supply chain. We want to take all our suppliers with us on our journey to greater sustainability and use better practices to driver commercial performance.
Supplier screening: We review the environmental, social and governance practices of suppliers during the supplier selection process
Ongoing supplier engagement: We have a programme of ongoing paper-based and on-site reviews and audits to ensure compliance and to drive continuous improvement
In 2019, we conducted 22 on-site supplier audits
89 per cent of our hardware spend was with suppliers that have been audited in the last four years, which exceeded our target of 85 per cent
75 per cent of our components are sourced from suppliers that have been audited by us directly, our contract manufacturers or through recognised industry audit schemes
