In 2013 Dairy Crest Limited implemented the EcoVadis Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”)
monitoring platform to identify, assess and mitigate potential risk areas (including slavery and
human trafficking) in our supply chain. This platform combines CSR assessment expertise and
data management tools, which allow us to monitor the ethical, social and environmental
performance of key direct and indirect suppliers. The platform also provides a methodology for
following up on and dealing with suppliers where risk is identified and measuring compliance with
our Supplier Corporate Responsibility Policy.
