Supporting Suppliers

By becoming a supporter, you will be able to showcase your commitment to risk management and adherence to international standards within your supply chain.

What you will get

What you will pay

Demonstrating your support for the IMPA ACT Supplier Code of Conduct online is free of charge, but please understand that supporters do not get access to the tools and resources that help with compliance under the programme, which makes the journey especially onerous for companies with limited capacity and resources in the CSR field.

What you will have to do

To become an IMPA ACT Member, you will have to:

  • Be an IMPA member; you can find out more about membership of the International Marine Purchasing Association here.
  • Partner with one of your existing customers (a shipowner or ship manager) that is an IMPA ACT Purchaser Member or Commit to start the journey on your own;
  • Demonstrate a pre-existing commitment to responsible supply chain management, Corporate Social Responsibility and Responsible Business Conduct, and show that your company is committed to sustainable purchasing;

Once accepted as an IMPA ACT Member, you will need to:

  • Collaborate with your partner (if applicable) and the IMPA ACT team;
  • Implement systems to identify, mitigate and remediate your company's adverse impacts on the principles of the IMPA ACT Supplier Code of Conduct, and extend the same requirements to your value chain and business relationships;
  • Contribute with insight when asked by the IMPA ACT team, unless you reasonably cannot;
  • Report the progress made with responsible supply chain management and IMPA ACT every year when prompted to do so by the IMPA ACT team (failing to do so will render your status as inactive);
  • Advise and Cooperate when you are ready to be evaluated, so the evaluation can be carried out by your customer (i.e. the IMPA ACT Purchaser Member).
