The insurer today unveils its new flagship Supplier Accreditation Scheme, designed to encourage its suppliers to adopt sustainable business practices across their respective organisations.
The Scheme measures the strength of suppliers’ responsible business practices by inviting firms to complete a survey about their community and environmental activities. The survey covers a broad range of topics including environmental impact, diversity and inclusion, workplace rights, governance and community activity. Zurich’s in-house experts score the supplier responses and award gold, silver or bronze accreditation depending on the suppliers’ approach to sustainability.
Of the award, Lorraine Findlay, VP of Human Resources and RRD UK’s CR sponsor said “we are delighted to be recognised as a Gold Standard partner by Zurich. The fact that we have achieved the gold standard is a great recognition of the work that we are doing as part of our own CR strategy. And the accreditation from Zurich UK is testament to our CR vision ‘to be the partner of choice for our clients, supporting and enhancing their sustainability mission with our own”.
At RRD we firmly believe that by working with our clients and suppliers, we can make the most impact to futureproof our planet.
