tiï O Q, Sustainability Review (continued) Sourcing sustainably (continued) Compliance with our Supplier Code Procedure Introduction Report of the Executive Board Report of the Supervisory Board 2020 commitment Ongoing compliance with our Supplier Code Procedure 2018 milestone 95% compliance with four-step Supplier Code Procedure Our progress On track In 2018, the milestone of 95% compliance with our four-step Supplier Code procedure among our operating companies was achieved. The result has significantly improved as compared to the previous years. We continue to identify and carry out corrective actions where risks and procedure gaps are identified, and to optimise our supplier base. We stopped working with 13 suppliers because they were unwilling to sign our supplier code (11), or refused to subscribe to EcoVadis (2). We refined our compliance assessment methodology and tools to strengthen insights and transparency of supplier performance.16 In 2018, we have updated the HEINEKEN Code of Business Conduct, the Human Rights Policy and published a new Brand Promoters Policy. We also updated our Supplier Code, in particular to promote fair wage in our supply chain, and fully aligned it with the above policies. For more details on our Supplier Code procedure and progress, see our website. Looking ahead We will be implementing new tools to enhance our supplier screening process to identify high- risk suppliers across key risk drivers - anti-bribery and anti-corruption, human rights, financial risk and information security. This will support us in strengthening our corrective action plans and thus maintaining sustainable supplier performance. Following the update of our Supplier Code, we will begin to roll it out with all our suppliers in 2019. Heineken N.V.
