After being with Perrigo for 13 months, I was promoted to Ethical Compliance and Sustainability Manager. In this role, I make a difference for our suppliers, and that difference improves their businesses and employee safety practices in ways that matter to us and to our customers.
I work with our global supply chain to ensure suppliers and materials meet ethical standards for labor, health and safety, and sustainability standards for environmental and business practices. Through weekly calls, webinars and onsite training, we share information that improves our suppliers’ business models and processes, helps their workers to be safer, and makes them stronger businesses overall. Our suppliers’ achievements of global ethical compliance standards are important to us, and make them more attractive to their current and future customers.
Sustainability is extremely important to us and our customers, and falls within Perrigo’s Five Pillars and objectives. It’s the right thing to do for everyone. Caring enough to help our suppliers achieve these standards demonstrates Perrigo’s “making a difference” value, and is exactly the type of positive impact I’ve experienced so far and come to expect with Perrigo.
