RESPONSIBLE PROCUREMENT PRINCIPLES

Cirque’s sense of good citizenship is part of its “genetic make-up”, embodied in a process of sharing and inspiration that appeals to all organizations and individuals in the community to stand forth as fully committed members of society. This is a long-term process, progressively achieved through the organization’s day-to-day actions.

As a corporate citizen, Cirque du Soleil strives to achieve a balance between its economic, social and environmental interests by acting in a manner that is meaningful and socially responsible. Going beyond simple philanthropy, this means ensuring that the organization's values are reflected in all of its business and management decisions.

Cirque du Soleil is a truly a global organization, interacting with a growing number of suppliers and business partners, hence the need to set up a responsible procurement program as well as to establish a dialogue with our partners and suppliers on the challenges of social responsibility.

In 2008, the company adopted a responsible procurement policy aiming at standardizing practices and providing a clear framework for all of its procurement decisions. In practice, this means instituting a set of measures to ensure that the merchandise we sell has been manufactured in a manner that respects both people and the environment.

The Cirque du Soleil Responsible procurement policy thus defines the basic principles that should be respected by its suppliers on environmental and labour rights.
