Abstract

Firms are increasingly held responsible for their suppliers’
sustainability related performance. Supplier codes of conduct (SCoC) are therefore an important instrument to govern multiple supplier relationships simultaneously. If there was a unanimously accepted SCoC standard, it could increase stakeholders’ trust in sustainability oriented supplier governance and also help firms to save costs. To facilitate its development, we analyze the literature on codes of conduct, aiming at the identification of requirements for such a standard. We sum up the requirements in form of eight theses.
