Ethical and Sustainability Procurement Policy

Bradbury’s Ethical and Sustainability Procurement Policy

 

Bradburys are committed to operate to the highest legal, ethical and corporate responsibility standards when purchasing Goods and Services

Supplier Partners

When an agreement to supply Bradbury’s take place the supply partner agree to accept and align with our ethical and sustainability purchasing policy. Our suppliers agree to work with us to continuously improve compliance to the agreed set of standards both within their own companies and those of their own supply chain.

The implementation of the ethical and sustainability purchasing policy is a shared responsibility between Bradbury’s and its Supply Partners.

Bradbury expectations are that Supply Partners are working towards;

1. Ensuring that products and services procured are produced and delivered in line with all laws, local regulations, PDO rules, best Industry standards and Customer codes of practices.

2. Awareness of the environmental impacts of their operations and those of their supply chain. Take responsibility for adopting and implementing acceptable safety, environmental, product quality, product stewardship, labour, human rights, social and legal standards under which products are made and services provided.

3. Highlighting any areas of legal or ethical concern so that both organisations can have a constructive dialogue about resolving any gaps and deficiencies.

4. Registration with SEDEX and completion of the SEDEX self- assessment questionnaire. New supply partners will ideally register before or during the supplier approval process to be able to supply Bradburys.

5. Ethical and Sustainability policy within their own business which demonstrates commitment to continuously improve the policy to meet customer need and demands

Both parties agree to:

  1. 1. Work together as far as reasonable possible to highlight and neutralise areas of risk and concern and non-compliance
  2. 2. Achieve fair value for the price, quality and volume offered
  3. 3. Collaborative working together to reduce packaging and move towards more recyclable materials.
