Our approach to supply chain management goes beyond the requirements of our ISO accreditations and represents a commitment to continually review our entire supply chain and undertake risk led assessments.
Our supply chain is highly complex, and it is the most significant part of our environmental footprint and social impact. Ensuring the right levels of control is vitally important.
…we helped one of our banking customers to develop a writing pen that becomes biodegradable when placed in water.
Banner is committed to eradicating modern slavery throughout our supply chains, in line with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
All our suppliers are subject to our Anti-Slavery Policy, which has been built into their contracts with Banner. As part of our contracting process, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children. It is mandatory for all suppliers to sign this commitment, which is contractually binding.Click here to read more
We offer Ecolabel cleaning products, which have to pass strict tests, on biodegradability, packaging to in-use ratio and performance, to achieve accreditation. We recently introduced Clover Eco five-litre containers, which reduce packaging waste by dispensing more product with less packaging.
At Banner our preference for suppliers who offer high environmental and ethical trading standards goes alongside a continual drive to source sustainable and accredited product ranges.
