Evergreen Marine's value chain
Evergreen Marine works closely with all suppliers to promote the flow of international cargo by delivering owners' goods to their destinations.
Five major aspects of the Supplier Code of Conduct
Screening of Suppliers
Evergreen Marine's supplier selection is based on the established "Supplier Transaction Management Instructions" and the "Business Partner Management Instructions”". In addition to the implementation of the QDCS evaluation, we have incorporated the ﬁve major requirements as in the "Supplier Code of Conduct", and conduct the supplier's CSR performance survey to determine the current status of the supplier management as a basis for supplier selection.
Evergreen Marine promotes suppliers to sign the "Evergreen Marine Supplier Sustainability CSR Commitment", with the aim of fulfilling the corporate social responsibility with suppliers so as to fulﬁll corporate social responsibility, promote environmental sustainability, and implement and safeguard basic human rights. The Company has also begun to promote the inclusion of CSR clauses in the contracts with important suppliers.
Major requirements of CSR clauses:
Suppliers shall abide by the CSR policy of both parties. In the case of the violation the policy with a significant impact on the environment and society, the Company may terminate the contract at any time.
Suppliers shall not accept or provide commissions, kickback, or illegitimate interests.
Suppliers shall reduce the negative impact on the environment and society, and shall not instigate or induce stakeholders to violate their duties for the benefit of themselves or others.
