Supplier Code of Conduct

HKEX Aspect B4, B5, KPI B4.1, B4.2, B5.2

Swire Properties’ Supplier Code of Conduct (“SCoC”) sets out minimum standards and practices for our suppliers relating to legal and regulatory compliance, environmental protection, health and safety, labour practices, and other areas.

To ensure proper respect for human rights throughout our business, including our supply chain, we require that all our suppliers do not use any form of forced, coerced, or bonded labour and that legal minimum age requirements for employment are strictly observed. Our policy is that no person who works for Swire Properties can be below 16 years of age unless they are part of a recognised professional apprenticeship programme. This policy extends to suppliers working on projects for Swire Properties.

In addition to encouraging our suppliers to have their own supplier codes of conduct in place, we require that all our suppliers adopt and implement policies and procedures that prevent bribery, corruption and fraud in their own operations. Suppliers that fail to comply fully with our SCoC risk termination of their contracts, subject to the contractual terms therein, and removal from our approved contractors list.

In 2020, we introduced a new e-Contractor List Management System, providing a framework to monitor the performance of technical service providers and handle any disciplinary issues. Service providers are now required to perform well in five areas: health and safety, environment, procurement, management and quality, or risk disciplinary action.
