We have developed policies and procedures in relation to services received from third-party providers. As far as possible, we will work only 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.

More details are available in our Procurement policy.
