We really value the partnerships we have with our suppliers and it's important for us to treat them how we'd like to be treated – ethically and with respect.
We've built sustainability into our tendering process to make sure our suppliers share our strong ethical approach to business.
We take a partnership approach when working with suppliers and service providers to make sure the relationship is working for both of us by:
- Building relationships on openness, honesty and integrity
- Creating a fair and transparent tender process
- Basing our decisions on quality, service and price
- Monitoring our relationships with suppliers and treating them fairly
- Providing timely feedback throughout the tendering process and as part of the working relationship
- Supporting local suppliers where we can to strengthen local communities and economies
