We are keen to establish strong relationships with our suppliers because we know how critical they are to supporting us in achieving our goals.
We expect our suppliers to comply with laws and regulations and conduct their business ethically and sustainably, respecting internationally recognised human and labour rights.
We are committed to the fair treatment of all suppliers, ensuring that they are paid on time. Our typical payment terms are 30 days within receipt of a valid invoice where goods or services have been received to the agreed quality and quantity.
We welcome the opportunity to help smaller suppliers to develop and can signpost developing business to resources to support their growth.
Our commitment to our Suppliers when a dispute arises is to resolve the issue, fairly, transparently, and efficiently, with the key principles in this process being:
Disputed invoices are identified and raised directly with the supplier.
The accounts payable team offer support during the dispute resolution process.
Where it is not possible to reach an agreement, we acknowledge several potential dispute resolution methods including mediation, adjudication, expert determination and litigation or arbitration.
