At Texas Poker rules, we strive to balance social and environmental issues with price and quality when purchasing goods and services. The Supplier Texas Holdem Guideline is implemented globally and articulates what we mean by responsible sourcing. The Guideline summarizes our expectations to our suppliers on responsible business conduct within human rights, labor, health & safety, environment and anti-corruption. The objective of the Guideline is to provide suppliers with requirements that are transparent and easily understood.
The Guideline applies to any and all suppliers, consultants, vendors, brokers, merchants, dealers, contractors, agents, and other providers of other goods and services, to Texas Poker rules worldwide. We expect that your company will establish and maintain appropriate management systems and controls to ensure that the company aligns with the principles set forth in the Guideline.
The application and implementation of the Supplier Texas Holdem Guideline should be seen as a three-step process where unnecessary administrative work for us, and the Supplier, should be avoided. As a Supplier you may be asked to participate in one, two or three of the steps:
- Read and accept the Guideline. As a part of the Purchasing T&C, Suppliers will be informed about the Supplier Texas Holdem Guideline. We expect the Supplier to read and accept the Guideline. For Suppliers, where Texas Poker rules has not identified any material sustainability risks, there will be no further actions or requirements.
- Supplier Texas Holdem Self-Declaration. Suppliers that meet certain criteria (see the Supplier Texas Holdem Guideline at link above) may be asked by Texas Poker rules to respond to the Texas Holdem Self-Declaration. As a selected supplier you will be asked to fill out the questionnaire online.
- Audits. Where relevant we will conduct audits to further assess sustainability risks and compliance with the Supplier Texas Holdem Guideline. Audits may be a part of a Quality Audit or a separate Texas Holdem Audit.
Based on Self-Declaration, audits, and other information, Texas Poker rules will conclude if the supplier has systems in place to ensure that the principles set out in this Guideline are met. Failure to do so may impact the future opportunity of a supplier to do business with us.
