Supplier code of conduct


Emerald Group Holdings Limited (Emerald Group) is a global publisher linking research and practice to the benefit of society. Emerald Group procures goods and services from suppliers across the world.

We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business relationships. This includes ensuring that there is no slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory human labour, abuse of power over vulnerable individuals, human trafficking or any other form of exploitation in any part of our business or in our supply chain.

We expect our suppliers to have a willingness to share our values. This code of conduct has been created to set out the values and principles that underpin all of our work. It is applicable to all of our suppliers and sets out the standards that we expect them to comply with.

As a minimum, we expect our suppliers to meet the following requirements:

  • Compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

  • Paying fair wages in line with the norms for the industry and market and not requiring anyone to work excessive hours, particularly where this might impact personal health and safety.

  • Treating those who work for or on behalf of the business with dignity and respect, promoting a safe environment free from discrimination, harassment and victimization.

  • Opposing illegal or inhumane labour practices, including the use of forced or child labour, modern slavery or human trafficking.

  • Maintaining an ethical concerns policy (procedures that staff may adopt in the event they suspect an instance of unethical behaviour, including slavery and human trafficking).

  • Monitoring supply chains for compliance with the above requirements.

By contracting with us as a supplier, you agree to adhere to this code of conduct. As part of our commitment to act ethically and with integrity, we may from time to time ask our suppliers to demonstrate that they work in the ways required by this code of conduct. If, as a supplier, you have any concerns about compliance with this code of conduct you must make these known to us without delay.
