Supplier standards

How to work with Clifford Chance

Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets our expectations of our suppliers; it acts as our statement of intent as to what is important to us and what we in turn expect of our suppliers.

It provides a set of key principles that underpin the minimum standards we expect from our supplier suppliers and contractors; the key principles address the 'ethical behaviour' we expect from our suppliers and the minimum standards address how those principles should be implemented, the controls our Suppliers should have in place, and how we work together. 

The standards have been carefully reviewed to make sure that all suppliers regardless of size should be able to meet these standards. Please click on the 'download' button to access each standard:
