Essentra Components Supplier Code of Conduct

At Essentra, we are committed to conducting our business in a responsible and ethical manner. We recognise that our suppliers play a crucial role in our value chain and share in our commitment to upholding high standards of integrity, sustainability, and social responsibility. This Supplier Code of Conduct (the Code) sets out the principles and expectations that we require our suppliers to adhere to when conducting business with or on behalf of our organisation.

By aligning our practices with this Code, we strive to promote positive social and environmental impacts throughout our supply chain, foster fair and safe working conditions, and drive sustainable business practices. We believe that by working together with our suppliers, we can create a more inclusive and sustainable future for all stakeholders.

This Code applies to all suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors who provide goods or services to Essentra. It outlines the minimum standards that we expect our suppliers to meet and encourages them to go beyond these requirements whenever possible.

We recognise that local laws and regulations may differ across the regions in which we operate. However, this Code serves as a universal framework to guide our suppliers' behaviour and encourage best practices, irrespective of legal requirements. We expect our suppliers to not only comply with applicable laws but also embrace these principles and work towards continuous improvement.

By adhering to this Code, we demonstrate our shared commitment to:

  1. Ethical Conduct: Upholding the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and transparency in all business practices.
  2. Human Rights: Respecting and promoting the fundamental human rights of all individuals, including but not limited to, prohibiting child labour, forced labour, discrimination, and ensuring freedom of association and collective bargaining rights.
  3. Labour Practices: Providing fair and safe working conditions, including fair wages, reasonable working hours, and promoting a workplace free from harassment, discrimination, and unsafe practices.
  4. Environmental Sustainability: Minimising our impact on the environment by promoting resource efficiency, waste reduction, pollution prevention, and the responsible use of natural resources.
  5. Supply Chain Responsibility: Managing our supply chain to ensure that our suppliers uphold the same standards of ethical and sustainable conduct that we expect from ourselves.
  6. Legal Compliance: Complying with all applicable laws, regulations, and international standards related to our operations, products, and services.
  7. Collaboration and Continuous Improvement: Actively engaging in collaboration with Essentra to drive sustainable practices, innovate, and continuously improve social and environmental performance.

We believe that our suppliers are integral partners in achieving our sustainability goals. By agreeing to operate to the principles within this Code, suppliers demonstrate their commitment to these principles and their willingness to work in collaboration with us towards a more sustainable and responsible future.
