BUILDING TRUST

Responsible value chains

We set clear expectations for the environmental, social and governance performance of our suppliers. We have developed a defined approach to value chain due diligence, including a specific programme focused on identifying high-risk impacts associated with the minerals and metals we source and supply, with the aim of promoting continuous improvement.
