At Aberdeen, we adhere to strict standards of corporate conduct, ethical behaviour and compliance as set out in Aberdeen’s Statement of Ethical Standards. And we want to work with suppliers who share our business standards.
We have developed a Supplier Code of Conduct which outlines the basic ethical requirements suppliers should adhere to when doing business with Aberdeen and sets out our global commitment to the Modern Slavery Act.
This Code of Conduct supplements our new supplier due diligence questionnaire which includes questions on key issues such as: risk management; anti-financial crime; outsourcing; information security; data privacy; business continuity; labour policies and environmental management.
More locally, in the UK, Aberdeen is a Living Wage Foundation Employer, does not employ any individuals on zero hours contracts and continues to comply with the UK Government Prompt Payment Code, an initiative to promote best practice between companies and their suppliers.
