3i’s supply chain is small, and consists predominantly of the procurement of professional services which typically have a relatively low carbon footprint.
3i’s principal facilities management supplier, Sodexo, holds an ISO 14001 certification and, through its Better Tomorrow Plan, is reducing the environmental impact of the activities it undertakes on behalf of clients such as 3i.
We have developed policies and procedures in relation to services received from third‑party providers. As far as possible, we will only work with suppliers who support our aim to source products and services responsibly. We aim to have a collaborative relationship with our service providers and, wherever possible, will work with them when problems or issues arise to help them meet our requirements.
