Our supply chain

Our supply chain includes the procurement of pharmaceutical products and their components. Our industry is highly regulated and requires approval and licensing which facilitates transparency in the supply chains. The consistent application of robust supply chain due diligence principles, internally referred to as “Know your Business Partner (KYBP)” enables us to make a judgement on business transactions and the ethical integrity of our supply chain partners.

We further aim to build strong partnerships with each of our strategic suppliers to ensure they comply with our values and that they are aware of our commitment to protect human rights and the environment and as part of our procurement selection processes, we require all of our suppliers to comply with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act and include appropriate contractual obligations within all of our commercial agreements.

We source our products globally and risk is assessed on a case-by-case basis. We have reviewed our existing business partners and assessing these against key modern slavery risk indicators. Where we have identified business partners displaying characteristics of a higher level of modern slavery risk, we have requested them provide further information, to determine whether appropriate policy and processes to identify and manage these risks are in place, and whether the level of due diligence they undertake and protection they afford their supply chain and employees is sufficient to meet our requirements.

If a supplier fails to adequately address our concerns or remediate any risks identified, the relationship would be re-evaluated and if necessary, terminated.

Where potential modern slavery impacts are identified within a contract requirement, we will work with our suppliers to develop appropriate KPIs to monitor and manage performance in regard to these risks.

Our policies

We are committed to doing the right thing by ensuring we respect human rights and the environment. We manage a governance framework for all material focus areas within our sustainable framework and follow best practice guidelines provided by the Government Commercial Function, on which our policy and processes are based.
