Doing business with us

We expect companies and individuals that work with us to share our values.

Suppliers may be required to participate in our pre-screening process, which requires companies and individuals to provide sufficient evidence to meet or exceed minimum standards of health, safety, the environment, human rights, quality management and financial capacity, as well as ethical and anti-corruption practices. If and as needed, we can work with prospective suppliers to help them achieve the required standards.

Upon successful award of a contract, suppliers may also be required to provide additional information for our contractor management system, if applicable, including but not limited to health and safety practices, insurance coverage, and company and personnel qualifications.

Health, safety and the environment

Health and safety is our number one priority and we expect the same commitment from our partners. We value suppliers who:

 

  • Have the ability to work closely and in partnership with local and Indigenous businesses and local communities
  • Manage and communicate product health and safety risks
  • Have a strong commitment to health and safety management and the elimination of workplace injuries and illness
  • Have processes in place to assure compliance with safety policies
  • Reduce our collective environmental footprint through their practices, products and services

Supplier Code of Conduct

Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets out our expectations of suppliers and their subsidiaries and subcontractors with respect to key issues ranging from health and safety, compliance, human rights, environment and reporting. We may choose not to work with suppliers who do not meet our expectations. If you have questions regarding our Supplier Code of Conduct, or about our expectations of our suppliers and business partners, please email us.
