Trinseo Introduces Supplier Code of Conduct
Trinseo, Berwyn, PA/USA, a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex and rubber formerly known as Styron, is introducing a Supplier Code of Conduct to its key suppliers starting in March 2015. The Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC) outlines the minimum standards that Trinseo expects its suppliers to comply with when doing business with the company.
“Trinseo’s commitment to global citizenship and sustainability extends through our supply chain, and we expect Trinseo suppliers to conduct their operations in a socially and environmentally responsible manner,” said Catherine Maxey, vice president of Public Affairs, Sustainability and EH&S. “Supplier codes of conduct are becoming more prevalent in our industry, as more companies are being held publicly accountable for not only their own actions, but also those of their supply chains.”
The Trinseo Supplier Code of Conduct is founded on three basic principles:
- The company expects its suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
- Trinseo encourages its suppliers to adhere to the highest principles of environmental responsibility, sustainability, ethical behavior, corporate social responsibility (CSR), fair labor practice and a safe healthy workplace.
- The company expects all its suppliers to operate responsibly and in a manner that is consistent with Trinseo’s Code of Conduct and related Ethics and Compliance Policies.
The code includes sections on: management systems, human and worker rights, environment, health and safety, business ethics, material sourcing, and compliance and reporting.
