CBRE’s brand and associated global reputation are one of CBRE’s most valuable assets. Globally, we are committed to conducting business with integrity and in a manner consistent with adherence to fundamental ethical, legal, and responsible business (CSR) standards with utmost regard for our fiduciary responsibilities.
I am pleased to confirm that CBRE has now launched a new global Supplier Code of Conduct which comes into immediate effect. As such, the policy requires our suppliers who provide CBRE with products or services to embrace CBRE’s commitment, and to exercise commensurate standards and due diligence. The Supplier Code of Conduct will now become central to supplier selection and retention.
Accordingly, the Supplier Code of Conduct addresses topics including: corruption, unfair business practices, data privacy and information security, conflicts of interest, human rights in the context of employment practices, employment-related health and safety concerns, supplier-provided gifts, and environmental compliance and sustainability requirements.
Who does the Policy affect?
This policy applies globally to all CBRE businesses and departments, including all corporate office locations, lines of business, shared services and operational business units.
All CBRE businesses and departments must include and/or reference the Supplier Code of Conduct in all supplier contracts and purchase orders moving forward, and templates will be updated to reflect these changes. All CBRE business and departments will reasonably monitor their respective suppliers’ adherence, and take appropriate measures regarding supplier non-compliance.
APAC Compliance, Corporate Responsibility and Supply Chain and Procurement leadership teams have been working closely with Global colleagues to support the development of this policy. The document has also been published externally on our website. Please direct any stakeholder enquiries to your appropriate finance or procurement team in the first instance.
