Supply chain

We aim to select suppliers that protect the environment, meet high standards on employment practices and commit to acting ethically in all aspects of their business. This reduces risks for the Group and its clients. All our business partners and suppliers are required to sign a copy of the WPP Code of Business Conduct to confirm they will abide by its principles, including those relating to sustainability. In 2013, we piloted a supplier risk assessment process in partnership with Sedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange.
