Beyond the drawing board.
Supply chains are complex and ours is no different. In order to produce more than 260,000 machines that roll off the production lines each week, we work with several hundred suppliers all over the world.
Dyson and its suppliers are responsible for the impact of their activities on the environment and for the people involved in the production of Dyson appliances and components. Our commitment to this is long term and continuous – because there will always be a better way to do things.
We're demanding and driven.
We only want to work with suppliers who share our drive for improvement. We expect them to meet international standards regarding health and safety, labour and the environment.
Our suppliers work to an ethical and environmental code of conduct that covers a range of subjects, including working hours, freedom of association, environmental monitoring, and fair disciplinary practices.
How we realize this goal
Our internal Corporate Social Responsibility team works with suppliers to ensure compliance with the Code through remote assessments, audits and site visits. If a supplier does not meet our standards, we look for another that does.
Our statement under the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 describes our responsible sourcing activities in more detail.
Every Dyson component must comply with the European Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS). Dyson also complies with REACH, the European regulation on the registration of chemicals.
