TSL is committed to providing products that meet the highest environmental and ethical standards. In order to achieve this, we require our supply partners to have the same objectives. We work closely with all of our supply partners to develop long-lasting working relationships that ensure that we are in a position to drive continual improvement across Quality, Ethical, Environmental and Health & Safety standards.
Across our supply base, a number of different audits are conducted to ensure that our partners meet both our customers’ and TSLs’ expectations. These audits include:
When we are introducing new partners into our supply base, we conduct a multiple stage assessment which includes supplier questionnaire, Quality assessment (BRC Audit, ISO13495 Audit) and Ethical Assessment (SMETA Audit) as a minimum requirement. Additional requirements such as customer audits, FSC® and/or PEFC™ are also assessed as necessary before they can supply products.
