Code of Ethics
Worldline places great importance on the principle that business should be conducted both profitably and responsibly. The company complies with applicable laws in all countries. This is mandatory, but it is not enough for us: Worldline aims at all times to conduct its business in line with good ethical principles and practices both internally and with third parties.
Worldline’s global sustainable procurement strategy
As part of our ambition to constantly integrate sustainability throughout the value chain, Worldline has strengthened its supply chain actions, including how we procure goods and services and the selection and evaluation of suppliers.
In 2018, we updated our code of conduct for our partners and suppliers: the Business Partner’s Commitment to Integrity Charter is now enclosed in each Request For Proposal and contract. This charter also gives the right to suppliers and subcontractors to report breaches of the Worldline Code of Ethics within our whistleblowing procedure.
In 2018, we also organized our annual meeting to share our sustainability mindset and commitments with suppliers so that we could measure progress in areas such as human rights and the environment, notably on the issue of conflict minerals. A letter from the CSR Officer was addressed to our main hardware suppliers on this specific concern.
