We have tremendously high expectations for the companies with which we do business. These include a robust set of workplace standards that in many cases go beyond the requirements of local laws. We expect our vertical brand suppliers, vendors, and their subcontractors to adhere to the terms of our Vendor Code of Conduct, avoid substances listed on our Restricted Substance List and follow business practices consistent with our Human Rights Policy.

DICK’S Responsible Sourcing teammates conduct supplier visits to assess performance, help remediate issues and provide consulting assistance through educational and outreach training sessions. We aim to help suppliers improve; however, when necessary, we will terminate relationships if we see evidence of serious or persistent poor compliance performance, lack of transparency or lack of management cooperation.
