our hero supplier programme
We all like heroes. Some like heroes strong. Some like them fast. Some even like them fresh from a fight. Here at innocent we like our heroes to use renewable electricity and install water efficient taps.
We want to work with suppliers that share our passion for doing business responsibly. It's important that the suppliers we work with share our values and we work with them to reduce the amount of energy, water and waste in our supply chain. We do this primarily through our hero supplier programme. The programme looks to do 4 things:
Each of our suppliers then gets scored for how they are doing. We expect all of our suppliers to be demonstrating very strong sustainability performance. Our blending and bottling partners need to get a score of 2 out of 3 by the end of 2020 whilst our packaging suppliers have until the end of 2021.
Segregated bins for recycling. Waste transfer documentation. Environmental policies. It might sound a bit dry (did we say it entails filling a massive spreadsheet?) but for us that is what true heroes are made from. We get quite hot under the collar just thinking about it.
