Across our business, we source several commodities and raw materials in multiple categories. Some of these require heightened procurement focus due to critical environmental or biodiversity concerns or elevated human rights risks in the supply chain. Beyond our overall sustainable sourcing framework that applies to all the materials and goods we purchase, as encompassed in our Responsibility Standards for Suppliers, we collaborate with partners to understand the potential risks and impacts of our procurement activities and to define appropriate standards and controls in responsible sourcing of commodities and materials of concern.
We maintain two multiyear forest partnerships with the World Wildlife Fund in Sabah, Malaysia, and Sumatra, Indonesia, to enable the protection of tropical rain forests that are critical for climate mitigation, wildlife conservation, and long-term community well-being.
We partner with Rainforest Alliance to implement our wood-fiber product sourcing criteria, leveraging technology to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of our sourcing assessments of these products.
We implement our sourcing criteria with our top suppliers by volume, building transparency and monitoring non-conformance as part of our partnership with Earthworm Foundation.
As members of the Responsible Minerals Initiative and in line with regulatory requirements, we remain committed to taking steps to determine the use, country of origin and source of conflict minerals in our global product portfolio.
