Supplier Survey and Report
2016 was the fourth year for our Annual Supplier Survey. As a property development and asset management company much of our business activity is delivered through our supply chain. Developing a systematic but simple approach to monitoring the sustainability standards of our suppliers is therefore critical to the achievement of our sustainability targets.
Our supply chain survey allows us to understand current practice amongst our suppliers, and ensure they are aware of and signed up to the Hammerson Code of Conduct. By completing the survey, our suppliers are given a score and associated award level- Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. They also see how their score compares to a benchmark of our suppliers in their sector and are provided with feedback on areas for improvement.
We look at four key areas:
- Corporate Responsibility – policies, reporting and communications
- Environmental Management – impact identification and management
- People – training, diversity and equality
- Supply Chain – managing supply chain risks
