By keeping Heathrow open and operating safely, our dedicated teams have helped passengers get away on their journeys, and businesses continue trading with the world despite unprecedented challenges.
Heathrow’s agenda on sustainability has evolved over the past several years meaning some of the aspects we were seeking as improvements before are now expected standard practice at the airport. In order to provide goods, works or services at Heathrow there are certain elements we must all comply with readily. Heathrow is committed to the Modern Slavery Act and requires our suppliers to sign up to obligations in our contracts relating to Modern Slavery. Our supplier selection process for new suppliers includes a requirement for suppliers in medium and high labour risk categories to make a commitment to registering with SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange). Heathrow is accredited to the Living Wage Foundation and requires all suppliers to pay the London Living Wage and has signed up to the Prompt Payment Code (PPC), covering prompt payment, as well as wider payment procedures.
