The IOC follows a responsible sourcing approach by which the sourcing of our products and services is carried out with environmental, social and ethical issues in mind. Through this approach, the IOC aims to use its influence to promote higher levels of environmental and social responsibility across its value chain.
Our approach relies on two sets of requirements:
- The IOC Supplier Code, which outlines the IOC’s minimal social and environmental requirements from its suppliers. It focuses on human rights, labour conditions, waste minimisation, optimisation of transport, and ethics.
- Ecological and social performance criteria applicable to certain categories of goods and services. These are complementary to the IOC Supplier Code and are communicated to our suppliers on a case-by-case basis, where relevant.
