Our approach to corporate sustainability

Our purpose is to work together to build better financial futures. This highlights the importance of collaboration to our business - working together as colleagues and in partnership with our stakeholders - and underlines our focus on sustainable long-term outcomes, while considering our impact on society and the environment. For this reason, sustainability is incorporated into our investment process, as well as our business operations.

Supply chain sustainability has been one of our main engagement themes as investors and we apply the same standards and rules to our own supply chain.

Our suppliers are expected to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct, which sets out our standards, values and principles. Our Responsible Supply Chain Programme drives our sustainability and diversity ambitions through our supply chain, with a focus on three pillars:

  • Transparency – We will monitor supply-chain sustainability, focusing on the environment, labour and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement practices 
  • Equal Opportunity – We will improve the diversity of our supply chain by providing equal opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses, social enterprises and diverse-owned suppliers (i.e. woman/veteran/ethnic-minority/LGBT+/disabled-owned enterprises) to compete for Fidelity’s business – directly and as partners of our key suppliers 
  • Fairness – We will treat our suppliers fairly through prompt payment and streamlined processes.
