As part of its Environmental Sustainability Roadmap, TCS continues to engage its supply chain partners to encourage them to conduct their business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Engagement and capacity building are the pillars of the Sustainable Supply Chain program at TCS.
The sustainability requirements in the form of TCS’ Supplier Code of Conduct and Contractor HSE requirements are an integral part of vendor contracts and all vendors must agree to abide by these requirements.
Desktop assessments have been conducted for some vendors with indirect impact on TCS, including ICT suppliers. Site or process audits and reviews have been conducted for high-risk vendors with direct impact on TCS, such as hazardous and e-waste recyclers, as well as canteen, facility management, and transport service providers.
