Responsible Sourcing and Sustainability
We have a strong commitment to ethical business practices, treating people with dignity, respect and equal opportunity, and conducting business in a responsible way that promotes good stewardship of our planet. Business partners are expected to comply with our Business Partner Code of Conduct. The Business Partner Code of Conduct details our expectations regarding adherence to the Human Rights Commitment and other expectations related to human rights and labor, health and safety, the environment, and business conduct and ethics. Meanwhile, our responsible sourcing and sustainability program helps us assess our own upstream supply chain against social and environmental impacts.
As part of our IGNITE Strategy, we are focusing on climate stewardship as one of our critical environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities. This focus extends into our upstream supply chain, where we have committed to setting science-based scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets that require us to engage heavily with our suppliers to reduce their own carbon footprints. This priority is in addition to ongoing efforts to help ensure there is no deforestation in our forest commodity supply chains.
