Distributor joins global sustainability initiative
Azelis has announced it has joined Together for Sustainability (TfS), global initiative for sustainable supply chains. This membership follows on Azelis’ membership to UN Global Compact and Gold rating from EcoVadis.
TfS, a joint initiative and global network of 25 chemical companies, delivers the de facto global standard for environmental, social and governance performance of chemical supply chains. The TfS program is based on the UN Global Compact and Responsible Care principles. TfS is growing into a global organisation with regional representation and strategic partnerships in Asia, North America and South America.
The TfS framework – TfS Assessments and TfS Audits – allows TfS member companies to assess the environmental, labour & human rights, ethical and sustainable procurement performance of their suppliers and drive and deliver tangible, measurable improvements of their suppliers’ as well as their own sustainability performance. TfS introduced this globally
applicable framework and tools to create transparency of the sustainability performance of chemical companies and their suppliers and to collaborate to continuously improve performance. Unique to the TfS concept is that the results of TfS Assessments and TfS Audits are shared with all member companies, following the consent of the supplier.
