Our Code of Ethical Behavior serves as our moral compass for decision making. It shows our associates, customers, stakeholders and business partners what we stand for and sets the expectation for how we should conduct ourselves and our business globally.Michelle Lowry Senior Manager, International Compliance
The Supplier Guiding Principles that we implement assist us in working with vendors and factories around the world as we strive to produce our products in safe and healthy environments while compensating our global associates appropriately. If problems arise and are not remedied in a timely fashion, then we are able to terminate our business with those vendors immediately.Sabrina Hernandez Cruz Director, Global Vendor Compliance and Social
Through our ability to partner with a variety of diverse vendors, suppliers and small businesses, Office Depot is able to compete and offer solutions in markets that we wouldn’t be able to through traditional channels. We help our suppliers grow by giving them a better opportunity to expand their customer base, and our customers are happy with the wide assortment of diverse suppliers that we’re able to provide.Frantz Tiffeau Senior Manager, Diversity Initiatives
The Positive Impact of Doing Business the Right Way
At Office Depot, we know that we win only when our customers, suppliers and other key stakeholders win. Exceeding customer expectations and building strong partnerships with the vendors, suppliers and communities we serve is the foundation of our continued success.
We fulfill our commitments and stand behind our products and solutions every day. Adhering to the highest ethical standards is vital. We ensure the relevance and effectiveness of our Ethics Policy through training, education and internal monitoring.
We are committed to helping build prosperity in the communities we serve. Core to that effort is our industry-leading, multidimensional initiative to help our small business partners flourish. Our Supply Chain Diversity Program assists Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) by helping them build relationships with the community, business and customers that can take them to the next level of success.
We are also focused on ensuring our products are sourced from suppliers who provide safe, healthy and legally compliant work environments. We clearly communicate our standards to suppliers and dedicate a global team of specialists to review and audit compliance.
