Sustainable supply chain management

Laws and regulations on labor standards, safety, and environment have been strengthened, while stakeholders demand for sustainable supply chain as a result of unethical issues such as forced labor and child labor that occur across the business supply chain as well as safety and environmental accidents. To manage business risks and fulfill social responsibility across the overall value chain, Amorepacific Group strives to enhance the sustainability of its strategic partners. To this end, the Group established sustainable management guidelines for partners to assess sustainable management and offers improvement measures and support to partners with inadequacy.
