Responsible and sustainable purchasing: CSR assessments of suppliers

Goal

Involving suppliers in Rémy Cointreau’s social and environmental commitments, monitoring their dedication to these causes and accompanying them in their development.

Rémy Cointreau considers that it is very important for its suppliers to share in its rigorous approach to social and environmental responsibility. The commitments of the international Global Compact charter form part of the contractual relationship between Rémy Cointreau and its suppliers. As a result, the company demands that its suppliers respect these global social and environmental commitments. This makes it possible to draw up a precise mapping of the social and environmental risks affecting key suppliers, together with a self-diagnosis matrix that is distributed to all suppliers.

The proper respect for these commitments by suppliers is assessed by means of audits conducted by the Purchasing department or by an independent audit company.
