The RBS Sustainable Procurement Code sets out the sustainability requirements that suppliers must meet in order to do business with us.
- We completed 63 supplier performance assessments, helping to ensure that suppliers work in a way that is consistent with our expectations.
- We launched the Supply Chain Partnerships Programme, making the bank’s expertise in sustainability available to suppliers and SMEs.
- We began working to deliver a new supplier electronic invoicing solution, to be made available for use in early 2016.
In 2014, we gained accreditation as a Living Wage Employer from the Living Wage Foundation, and committed to extend the Living Wage to our suppliers. Throughout 2015, we have continued to work to this end.
