Responsible Conduct by Employees and Suppliers

Corporations are being increasingly pressured to work with their suppliers and their customers to integrate environmental and social performance throughout the supply chain. We work with companies to address this in a variety of ways. This includes integrating sustainability issues in Codes of Conduct for employees, as well as:

  • performing comprehensive assessments of the sustainability attributes of their supply chain;
  • developing supplier codes of conduct that specify clear requirements including sustainability issues, and documenting binding commitments made by suppliers;
  • working with corporations to respond to customer survey requests on sustainable business practices and to address their requests for example in RFP responses

One of our key areas of competence is helping companies assess the Greenhouse Gas Footprints of their supply chains. These "Scope 3" emissions are an increasingly important part of a company's overall environmental footprint.
