The Sustainable Purchasing Policy
This policy is part of the Groupe Rocher Code of Business Conduct and complies with the Responsible Supplier Relations Charter signed by the Group in 2013. It is intended to act as a guide that explains the rules of good conduct that our Purchasing teams and our suppliers must obey. We hold them to the highest ethical standards. This does not only apply to the Buyers themselves, but also to all employees who may take part in the purchasing process.
