Coronavirus (Covid-19) and working with suppliers

Covid-19 Update: 12 November 2020

General Supplier Update: 21 May 2020

We are committed to ensuring that all our dealings with suppliers are conducted in accordance with the principles of fair and ethical trading, from initial sourcing to ongoing supplier management. We want to work with suppliers of all sizes who meet the required level of performance and quality.

Our strategy is about putting the customer at the heart of everything we do and our vision is to be the best bank for customers. To do this, we need to be confident that our suppliers practice our Code of Supplier Responsibility.

We work with suppliers who take time to understand our business and look for ways to bring insight and enhancements. By strengthening the way we do business, we can then look to generate innovative products, services and solutions that our customers are increasingly demanding.
