KPMG keeps its suppliers in check

KPMG has launched a supplier code of conduct to ensure they adhere to strict
environmental and ethical procedures.

The firm will write to its main suppliers this week notifying them of the ten
core principles they will now have to follow if they hope to continue business
with them.

Mike Kelly, head of CSR at KPMG said: ‘In an increasingly global market, no
firm operates in isolation. It is up to the business community as a whole to
work together to ensure that ethical, CSR and environmental principles underpin
working practises.’

In addition to applicable laws and regulation, suppliers will have to ensure
employees are treated fairly and that it has taken steps to reduce its
environmental impact across the business.

‘It is also something that clients and prospective employees increasingly ask
about. There is a growing awareness that ethical and environmental practice is
not just about one’s own policies but those of the parties one buys from too’
Kelly added.
