Supplier Standards and Risk Management
Our commitments extend to the goods and services we purchase and to the choice of suppliers with whom we work. We hold our suppliers to the same standards of social responsibility that we hold ourselves. To ensure they recognize and uphold these standards, we have developed a Supplier Code of Conduct. We ensure supplier´s compliance with this code by conducting supplier risk assessments and management.We strive to identify and address any actual or potential adverse impacts with which we may be involved whether directly or indirectly through our activities or our business relationships. We manage these risks by integrating the responses to our due diligence into our policies and internal systems, acting on the findings, tracking our actions, and communicating with our stakeholders about how we address impacts.Our values and guidelines are communicated to our external partners through our Supplier Code of Conduct, which provides the possibility of implementing corrective measures and responsible termination of the business relationship in the event of non-compliance.Our supply chain is controlled and mapped through advanced artificial intelligence systems that allow us to detect risks in our operations, to establish the level of risk for each of our suppliers and interact with them to take remedial action. This system is complemented by Supplier self-assessments, desktop audits, and on-site audits.Our corrective measures will be taken considering the type of risk, the seriousness of the risk, and according to a case-by-case analysis.
We, at Emma, established and are continuously improving our mechanisms to prevent, identify, limit and remediate harm to internal and external stakeholders, which can report ethical or legal violations through our internal Report Channel.
