We believe that we have an important role to play in trading responsibly with honesty and integrity at all times. Therefore, we want to ensure that those organisations with whom we interact, our suppliers and their representatives, live up to our values and standards and share this responsibility.

As part of our commitment to responsible and ethical trading, we have developed a Supplier Code of Conduct. This outlines our Sustainability Commitments and Key Principles that are critical for our suppliers to do business with us. We believe that this information sets out the high standards and the values we expect from our supply chain.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct covers 11 Key Principles for suppliers: 

Sustainability
Legal Requirements
Conflict of Interest
Human Rights
Health and Safety
Environmental Management
Bribery and Corruption
Conflict Minerals
Animal Welfare
Confidentiality
Quality

Full details of each of these can be found within our Supplier Code of Conduct here. Our Supplier Code of Conduct is available in the following languages: Portuguese, Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese and Spanish. Please email supplier.communications@croda.com if you would like a translated version.
