Managing our supply chain
We seek to work with suppliers and contractors to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain. This year we worked with four major suppliers to review their supply chains to identify potential human rights risks. In 2017, we will continue to review and benchmark our procurement processes and engage with our suppliers.
