Responsible Supply Chain Sourcing
AB InBev increasingly looks at our entire value chain for opportunities to reduce costs, limit environmental impacts and foster economic stability among our many suppliers and surrounding communities. A significant portion of our water and GHG footprints are associated with the activities of those suppliers. Understanding these impacts is highly complex, but it is something we are working hard to do.
At the same time, we want to ensure that the companies from which we purchase products and services are operating in an ethical and responsible manner. We have put in place a responsible sourcing policy that communicates our expectations in these areas and are assessing their performance through a variety of engagements.
In pursuit of our responsible sourcing goals, we take part in industry and NGO initiatives that seek to improve supply chain performance. We are a member of AIM-Progress, a global forum of consumer goods companies sponsored by the European Brands Association and the Grocery Manufacturers Association. The group's purpose is to promote responsible supply chain and sourcing standards covering labor practices, health and safety, environmental management and business integrity. As a member, we report audits of our suppliers to AIM-Progress.
We are also a member of SEDEX, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to driving ethical and responsible business practices in global supply chains. As the largest collaborative platform for sharing ethical supply chain data, SEDEX is an innovative and effective management solution that will help AB InBev reduce risk, protect our reputation and improve our supply chain practices.
