The value chain for the commodities that go into our products comprises our suppliers, and we have policies and processes in place to manage our key relationships and risks within both our Procurement function and as part of our ethics and compliance framework.
The heart of our value chain
Our own operations are at the centre of our value chain. It is here that we have the greatest control over our environmental impacts.
Immediately downstream of our operations are our customers. We work closely and collaboratively with them to develop the products they need to go into their own manufacturing. The products we sell to our customers often form an important part of the end product supplied to the user.
