ONYX’s Supplier Code of Conduct
ONYX Hospitality Group and its people are committed to operating and conducting our business in an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable manner, ensuring satisfaction of all our stakeholders.
As our company expands, our responsibility also grows and extends beyond our core operations and into our supply chains. Suppliers are one of our key stakeholders. The actions of our suppliers directly impact our reputation and customer relationships. The Supplier Code of Conduct has been introduced to encourage our suppliers to share our commitment towards sustainable supply chain management.
The Code sets out minimum standards under which we wish to engage our suppliers, and of which ONYX encourage suppliers to exceed.
