There is a consensus within Cirque du Soleil that in addition to the dialogue we conduct with our partners there is also a need to establish a responsible procurement policy with our suppliers. This is why, in 2008, the company adopted a new responsible procurement policy. This policy seeks to implement principles and measures aiming to insure that the products commercialized by the organization and its partners, as well as the products and services it purchases, are made in conditions respectful of the environment and workers’ rights.
This policy refers to principles of environmental respect and to norms defined by the International Labor Organization (ILO). The company takes an approach based on dialogue and cooperation when applying this policy. The policy should be implemented in a spirit of commitment to continuous improvement from both Cirque du Soleil and its suppliers.
