Making the most of our supplier relationships to better support the needs of our clients and firm means ensuring the right controls and procedures are in place to effectively manage, monitor and mitigate risk exposure. Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets out our expectations and the minimum standards we expect from the suppliers and contractors, and their subsidiaries and subcontractors, that provide goods or services to us.
We expect our suppliers to notify our Global Supplier Relationship Management Team immediately if they have any concerns in relation to their compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct and/or minimum standards. Any comparable standards shared by our suppliers will need to be reviewed / approved by Clifford Chance.
At Clifford Chance we see inclusion as a matter of justice and a core value of both our firm and the law. We firmly believe that if we have a set of values we must be prepared to champion and campaign for them both within our firm, across society and with our clients and suppliers. We seek to act in an open and transparent manner as part of our supplier onboarding process; promoting open and fair competition and engaging with diverse and underrepresented suppliers.
We are on a journey to continually improve how we work with our suppliers, and enable us to deliver on our commitments to our clients, and you can share any feedback you have either via your Contract Owner or Manager and/or with our Global Supplier Relationship Management Team directly.
We look forward to working with you.
Understanding what working with Clifford Chance means for you
What is good art? No simple answer can be given to that question because individual responses are subjective and consensus views change over time. The same could well be true of questions about ESG: originally developed in the investment community, this acronym for environmental, social and governance issues may now be universally recognised, but how these issues are perceived by different organisations and a consensus view on what they mean in practice remain in a constant state of flux.
