At Conduent, supplier governance is essential to our supply chain.
We hold our suppliers responsible for social, economic and environmental outcomes that can have an impact across our supply chain worldwide. As a part of the purchasing process, we assess the quality, cost, delivery and sustainability of all products and services.
Supply Chain Transparency
Slavery and Human Trafficking awareness is growing in the United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK) and Conduent is committed to this effort.
In the US, The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 became effective January 1, 2012. This California state law requires large retailers and manufacturers to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain.
In the UK, The Modern Slavery Act of 2015 requires companies with UK Operations to disclose what steps they have taken to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in their business and supply chains.
The purpose of our Supplier Code of Conduct (Code) is to ensure all Conduent Supplier business is conducted with the highest standards of integrity and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Code is intended to help Suppliers recognize ethics and compliance issues before they arise and to appropriately and thoroughly address issues that occur. It embodies the guiding principles and sets the tone for how Conduent’s Suppliers are expected do business every day.
