Getting Buy-In for Your Code of Conduct

A supplier code of conduct outlines the fundamental expectations for suppliers’ business conduct with respect to labor and human rights, health and safety, environmental protection, and laws and ethics. Setting expectations early and consistently is imperative to creating the cross-enterprise and cross-supply collaboration you need for sustainable esg reporting.

Challenges With Supplier Codes of Conduct

It’s one thing to provide a code of conduct; it’s another to ensure suppliers deep in your supply chain agree to its terms. Low supplier engagement rates, disorganized supplier onboarding, and a failure to set expectations are all-too-common pitfalls for programs. Any one of them could result in brand damage, supply chain disruptions, and loss of clients or market access.
