Bombardier believes that a strong commitment and a strategic approach to corporate responsibility are essential for managing the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing global environment.
To that end, Bombardier deployed a Corporate Responsibility Roadmap that enhances Bombardier’s strategy for managing its business in a sustainable manner. Among the announced initiatives in its roadmap is Bombardier's decision to become a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary initiative that promotes business leadership in support of the Global Compact's ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption.
Therefore, in line with Bombardier's vision for its suppliers, Bombardier wishes to actively engage its supply chain by the adherence of all its suppliers to its Supplier Code of Conduct (the "Supplier Code") that has been developed with recognition of the ten principles outlined in the United Nations Global Compact.
Bombardier places substantial value upon suppliers who support and respect the internationally proclaimed human rights contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, such as equality, life and security, and freedom.
