Every year that passes, humans exhaust a year’s supply of natural resources in less time than the previous year (currently standing at around eight months)! This is placing increasing demand on the world’s natural resources.
At Pelican we look beyond quality and cost when sourcing suppliers. We take sustainability criteria into account when making purchasing decisions and want to be confident that our suppliers are sourcing their raw materials in a responsible, environmentally friendly way.
Our suppliers are asked to demonstrate how they ensure their products and services they provide us with are not having a negative impact on people or the planet.
In addition to considering environmental issues, we also ask the question “have the highest levels of ethics been demonstrated within the supply chain”? This includes ascertaining if suppliers’ employees have been treated fairly and commit to having a work environment that is free from human trafficking, slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
