Goulding is committed to the responsible sourcing of goods and services across all of its businesses. In turn, we seek to build trusted relationships with suppliers who conduct business responsibly, with integrity and transparency. We expect our suppliers to meet or exceed all the standards set out in our Supplier Code of Conduct. Commensurate with the size and nature of their business, we expect suppliers to have the appropriate processes, policies and systems in place to comply with the standards and to have mechanisms in place to determine and control risks in all areas addressed by our code of conduct.
The Code sets out the minimum standards we hold our suppliers to. However, we are committed to continuous improvement in our supply chain and similarly encourage our suppliers to adhere to the highest industry and international standards and promote best practices throughout their operations
