The Supplier Code of Conduct ensures safe and healthy workplaces for the people who make and supply goods, and provide construction, intellectual property rights and services for the City, where conditions meet internationally agreed upon standards as embodied in the many conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO). The Code ensures the City maintains its integrity as a public institution by contracting only with suppliers who support ethical business practices.
The standards set out in this Code are based on a set of fundamental ILO labour conventions that directly support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These conventions set out minimum standards for working conditions.
Adherence to the City’s Supplier Code of Conduct will facilitate supplier compliance with the fundamental labour conventions of the ILO, relevant laws, and other applicable environmental and ethical standards; however, suppliers and their subcontractors are responsible for ensuring that they are in compliance with relevant laws and standards.
