Working with suppliers means collaborating to build trusted relationships and having confidence in the standards to which our suppliers operate.

These supplier relationships are important to us and align with our values, as well as helping to maintain shared reputations, security of supply and operating standards. Supplier relationship management helps to assure us, our clients and other stakeholders that standards are upheld within our supply chain.

We have supplier assessment and performance measurement processes so that our key suppliers are carefully selected and measured, against clear criteria, whilst extending influence down the supply chain.

More information on our supplier due diligence and relationship management is detailed in our Modern Slavery Statement.

We are an accredited Living Wage Employer and we believe that those working in our supply chain deserve fair pay, just as those working at our firm do.

We will not work with suppliers whose values and business practices would adversely impact or reflect on our reputation or culture.

We expect our suppliers to observe and align with our Responsible Procurement policy and work in the spirit of collaboration and continual improvement.

In return our suppliers can expect us:

  • To deal with them in a professional and courteous manner;
  • To work with them to achieve a collaborative, sustainable relationship;
  • To reward, where possible, high-performance levels from suppliers with opportunities for future business;
  • To engage, where possible, with supplier diversity networks to collaborate and learn from each other;
  • To listen to feedback on our relationship, acting on improvements where possible and reasonable;
  • To support them in attainment of appropriate ISO certification and the benefits that follow;
  • To give due consideration to their alignment with our Responsible Procurement Policy and to be supportive of continual improvement against the standards it sets out; and,
  • To apply our approach to supplier relationships consistently to all Burges Salmon suppliers.
