In our supply chain, we are advancing human rights through several tools such as EcoVadis, a platform collecting supplier data, and the Union for Ethical BioTrade principles, which we promote with our suppliers of natural ingredients through field audits. We also work with Sedex, one of the world’s leading ethical trade service providers, acting to improve working conditions in global supply chains. Building on our engagement with the UN Global Compact, we were the first company in our industry to sign the UN Global Compact Action Platform for Decent Work in Global Supply Chains in 2019.
