GCP is dedicated to conducting business around the world in accordance with the highest level of legal, and ethical principles, and we have instilled a culture of dignity and mutual respect in our employees worldwide.
GCP strongly believes in socially responsible business practices wherever we operate, as stated in our code of conduct. We expect our suppliers to behave responsibly and to adhere to local laws as well as ensure their commitment to avoid human trafficking and slavery in the marketplace. We recognize that the relationship we have with our Suppliers is critical to our success and expect very high standards from them in the key areas related to Human Rights and Labor Standards, Business Ethics, and the Environment. Our expectation is that they be self–monitoring and self-reporting.
This is a summary of GCP’s current efforts towards Transparency in the Supply Chain:
- All key Suppliers are expected to sign GCP’s code of conduct or provide their own internal code of conduct.
- With over 5,000 Suppliers, we have sequentially introduced this effort, initially targeting suppliers with whom we have a significant annual spend.
- We provide training on human trafficking and slavery to our employees and management who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the product supply chain.
