Abcam Partners with EcoVadis to Support Sustainability across its Supply Chain
Together, the two companies will support sustainability across Abcam’s supply chain through proactive monitoring and assessment of supplier performance and risk. This collaboration follows the launch of Abcam’s sustainability framework in 2020, comprising ten commitments across four key areas: Product, People, Partner and Planet, and a commitment to uphold its ethical standards across its supply chain. This follows from Abcam’s original supplier and distributor Codes of Conduct that were published in 2017.
