About US

Corporate Social Responsibility

Exertis Supply Chain Services is a procurement service provider for many high technology companies who have very strict standards, and we frequently operate within their Approved Vendor List (AVL).  These suppliers undergo rigorous assessment from our customers and we are happy to provide assistance with (and governance on) this whenever required.

Exertis Supply Chain Services is committed and dedicated to ensuring the highest standards of social responsibility are adhered to both on a company wide basis as well as with our supply base. In the case of Exertis sourced suppliers, we employ a strict Code of Conduct and are absolutely committed to ensuring social responsibility is employed throughout the supply base. We particularly emphasises a strict ‘no tolerance’ policy towards human trafficking and slavery.  Audits of our suppliers are frequent and all encompassing.

The Exertis Supply Chain Services ‘Code of Conduct’ includes the following

  • There is no forced, bonded or involuntary prison labour
  • Workers are free to leave their employer after reasonable notice
  • Working conditions are safe and hygienic
  • Child labour shall never be used
  • Fair wages are paid
  • Working hours are not excessive
  • No discrimination on any basis is practised
  • No harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed

No deviations from this Code of Conduct are tolerated.

Our suppliers must adhere to these standards as a condition of doing business with us and our customers.

Details of our opposition to slavery and human trafficking are outlined in the Exertis SCS Modern Slavery Statement. Our 2017 statement is available here and our 2016 statement is available here.

As a supplier of products that contain metals, Exertis Supply Chain Services is committed to operating in a socially responsible way.It is our policy to refrain from purchasing products from any known conflict sources and we expect our suppliers to adhere to the same standards.

Some of key facts and figures about our Social and Environmental responsibility are shown in the Exertis SCS Environmental Policy Presentation (June 2017)
