Responsible Supply Chain

Responsible Supply Chain

Embracing a sustainable supply chain

Sustainability is integral to our value chain. Supplier engagement on sustainable procurement generates benefits not only for our organisation, but also brings value to society, the economy, and the natural environment. We continue to reduce our carbon footprint in our businesses and have started identifying Scope 3 emissions resulting from assets not owned or controlled by our organisation. Effective sustainable procurement future-proofs our long-term objectives by enhancing our corporate reputation, lowering risk, reducing cost, and growing revenue. We uphold business ethics by supporting business opportunities and building the capability of our local and international suppliers.

A more responsible supply chain


A more responsible supply chain

Our suppliers contribute significantly to our sustainable development efforts. We prioritize understanding and managing their operations, supply chains, and their impact on the environment and community.

On our sustainability journey, we aim to align our supply chain's ESG performance with our standards. Compliance with these standards is expected from our first-tier suppliers, who are encouraged to demand compliance from their own suppliers. This creates a cascade of sustainable practices, promoting a circular and low-carbon economy across the supply network.

Promoting responsible supply chain through circular economy practices

Promoting a responsible supply chain through Circular Economy practices is crucial for building a sustainable and ethical business ecosystem. By embracing the principles of the Circular Economy, businesses can minimize their environmental footprint, support fair labor practices, and contribute to the long-term well-being of communities.

Code of business conduct

Our Code of Business Conduct for Third Parties provides additional clarity to our suppliers regarding our expectations in the following areas: 

Suppliers must comply with applicable environmental laws and regulations and conduct business with respect and care for the environment, including utilising energy and natural resources efficiently and managing waste, emissions, and discharges responsibly. We want to work with our supply chain partners to achieve our low-carbon and circular economy goals.


We conduct business in line with the human rights philosophy expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and health and safety as well as the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We expect suppliers and contractors working on our behalf to be guided by these principles. We will continue to exhort our contractors and business partners to strictly comply with these principles by including human rights clauses in our contracts while performing social assessments and supporting them through awareness-raising activities. 


Our contracts require suppliers’ performance to be guided by principles and standards outlined where they are required to comply with MISC’s CoBE; Anti-Bribery and Corruption Manual; Human Rights Commitment and Modern Slavery Policy and policies, procedures, standards and governance relating thereto as well as to all applicable laws, rules, orders, decrees or regulations relating to anti-bribery and corruption, antitrust/competition law, export and import controls, economic sanctions, protection of personal privacy (including personal data), human rights, anti-money laundering and occupational health, safety and environment.
