Supply Chain Governance

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the importance of a resilient and sustainable supply chain. Thome’s core business is to provide our stakeholders with best-in-class, competitive and safe sourcing options. Thus, having a strong supply chain governance would ensure that our suppliers are consistent in delivering reliable services, and allow Thome to deliver long-term value to our customers even in the midst of a crisis.

Our commitment to the highest level of ethical standards and compliance extends to our suppliers Thome is committed to working together in a transparent way and minimising any potential risks. In this regard, we expect our suppliers and other parties that we do business with, to uphold their business activities at high standards of ethics, labour, health and safety. Suppliers and collaborators may be blacklisted temporarily or permanently if found to contravene any standards, after our case and risk analysis. Thome is also part of the International Marine Purchasing Association (IMPA) which promotes supply chain governance, and all buyers and suppliers are required to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct which outlines responsible business conduct.
