Our suppliers are expected to share De La Rue’s commitment to best practice standards in health and safety, environmental protection, quality, product security and business continuity management. They are obliged to follow our Code of Business Principles, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and International Labour Organisation Conventions 138 and 182.

As part of our ongoing procurement programme we monitor our key cotton comber and linter suppliers to ensure that labour and working standards are suitable and comply with our policies relating to child labour.

De La Rue subscribes to the policies in the UK government's Prompt Payment scheme.

We undertake to pay suppliers on time, give clear guidance to suppliers and encourage good practice amongst our lead suppliers.
