Supply Chain

At instantprint, we’re committed to sustainability at the source, which is why we’re leading environmental and social improvements across our suppliers and the communities in which they operate – from the materials we use right down to delivery.

What is Supply Chain Sustainability

What is Supply Chain Sustainability?

Supply chain sustainability refers to the impact a company’s supply chain makes on human rights, fair labour practices and the environment. Focusing on our supply chain is key to our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts.

Our Commitment

Our Commitment

In support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and to ensure that we both are supporting your sustainability efforts and protecting the livelihoods and communities of the people across our supply chains we will engage and influence our suppliers to source materials that can be traced to a fair and socially responsible supply chain that you can trust.

We’re committed to fully mapping and understanding our supply chain by 2030 as part of our Value Chain Management with Diligent.

Social Impact

Our social strategy covers more than just the materials themselves, but the communities our suppliers work within as well. We ensure safe and decent working conditions across the value chain, making sure all suppliers are meeting our sustainability standards. Our standards for suppliers cover the following areas:

Modern slavery free
Fair representation of SMEs, and local and domestic suppliers
Child labour free
