We're committed to raising ethical and environmental standards in our supply chain and working with suppliers to improve working practices – all of which fosters better relationships and reduces our risks.
This year SABMiller Procurement launched a new Supplier Code of Conduct and Sustainable Development Standards covering the protection of human rights and labour standards, transparency and business ethics and environmental impact. These are aligned to the International Labour Organisation's core conventions and the United Nations Global Compact.
As a member of SEDEX, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange, and AIM-PROGRESS, a cross-sector forum that promotes responsible sourcing, we work collaboratively to improve supplier standards and share best practices. Two-thirds of our global suppliers' sites have been self-assessed against our standards using SEDEX.
