We consider factors such as environmental protection and sustainable development in the process of supplier management. In China, we ensure that our factories adhere to local “green factory” accreditation guidelines on production and logistic matters.
Our Procurement department conducts an annual supplier evaluation exercise, including an environmental assessment, to ensure that they meet our required Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in managing environmental matters. In the event that suppliers are unable to pass evaluations, we provide solutions and guidance to elevate the supplier’s processes. In FY2020, we subjected 502 out of 760 new suppliers to environmental screening criteria.
