|Why this matters to society
||Why this matters to Terma
|Just like Terma’s own, the CSR performance of the companies in our supply chain has an impact on the societies in which they operate.
||Our engagement towards CSR also means being a responsible supply chain partner and engaging with our suppliers on CSR challenges. This has the potential to generate a closer relationship with suppliers and raising the bar for responsible business conduct.
Integrating social responsibility in the supply chain
Being a responsible company means engaging where possible in our sphere of influence to ensure that our partners adhere to the same principles as we do. It is about raising awareness, clarifying the requirements and standards. It is evidently working with our supply chain towards reducing the environmental, ethical, and social impacts and risks.
Terma’s Supply Chain Management department is responsible for the establishment of all new supplier relationships and oversight of the supplier base.
Terma’s Code of Conduct for Suppliers and Service Providers describes the requirements that we have towards our suppliers and other third parties with whom we do business. We expect all our business partners to behave in respect of this commitment in a joint effort towards continuous progress, sustainable development, and improved ethical business practices. Our suppliers are required to cascade these principles throughout their own organization and supply chain; and are encouraged to implement and adhere to their own similar codes of conduct.
