Implementing Robust Supplier Management System
A while back we conducted a gap analysis to ensure that our ESG policies and procedures reflected best practice and standards. As a result, we developed a new supplier Code of Conduct covering modern slavery, anti-corruption and transparency.
With our broader sustainability mission in mind and our One Benchmark culture we developed an internal online supplier management system to be used across the Group as a single platform to track supplier compliance as well as suppliers’ progress in implementing an environmental policy and programme. This will then extend to obtain relevant metrics to be able to measure our scope 3 emissions and act as a conduit to initiate a constructive dialogue with our supplier ecosystem around relevant sustainability issues of impact in aquaculture.
With more than 2000 suppliers in more than 40 countries, implementing a fit-for-purpose policy and platform requires the involvement of all our business areas and key functions – legal, IT, and procurement – and showcases our values in action –innovative, commercial, passionate, and collaborative.
