Well Done- Big Tick for Arco

The award recognises companies that have shown innovation, creativity and sustained commitment to corporate responsibility. Arco’s supply chain and ethical programmes have created benefits for its suppliers and supported its working relationships both locally and internationally.Arco’s wider CSR objectives have enabled it to become involved in the local communities around its China operation. The firm is also a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative and the BITC Percent Club and donates one per cent of pre tax profits to charities.Arco supply chain director Joan Irving said: “It is a great honour to receive this recognition from BITC. Over the last few years we have worked hard to ensure our products are ethically sourced as well as ensuring a safe working environment for all employees. Winning the Award is an acknowledgement of the hard work and determination that the Supply Chain team has demonstrated over the last few years.  It is recognition of Arco’s success in embedding an ethical trading policy into an already established supply chain system.”
