Suppliers and contractors

Suppliers and contractors to the Group are bound by its policies. This applies to ‘scheme smallholders’ attached to the Group’s projects as well as other vendors of goods and services. Group policies cover not only quality criteria for what it buys, but also sustainability standards regarding human rights. For example, compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act and adherence to the health and safety requirements of the country in which the supplier operates. From an environmental standpoint, our suppliers must abide by Indonesia’s zero burning policy, the requirement to produce a social and environmental impact assessment before developing land, and the moratorium on new planting on peat. We also expect them to use best management practices for historical cultivation on peatlands and soils in general.  They should comply with international conventions on hazardous chemicals and organic pollutants.

Suppliers or vendors that are found to violate our policies will likely result in suspension of the contract for a period of six months during which they must take agreed steps to bring them in line with Group policies. The Group will not source goods or services from suppliers who fail to comply with this requirement.
