Supplier Code of Conduct
Developed in 2015, YVR’s Supplier Code of Conduct identifies minimum standards for suppliers and their subcontractors to promote safe and healthy workplaces, basic fair labour practices and environmental responsibility. These standards are based on the core labour conventions of the International Labour Organization. They include conventions focused on freely chosen employment, age of employment, non‑discrimination and diversity, health and safety, employee treatment, freedom of association and collective bargaining, wages and benefits, hours of work, environmental responsibility and anti-corruption business practices. YVR is working on several initiatives as part of the Supplier Code of Conduct to engage the supplier community and continuously improve and uphold the pillars of sustainability. In 2017, we included the Supplier Code of Conduct in 88 per cent of signed contracts.
