Message From Our Senior Vice President and Chief Global Supply Chain Officer
At Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., our goal is to provide authentic hospitality and excellent services by exceeding our guests’ expectations, taking ownership of any problem that is brought to our attention, and engaging in conduct that enhances our corporate reputation. In keeping with this goal, we respect fundamental human rights and core labor principles, recognize our responsibility to manage the environmental impact of our operations, and contribute to enhance the well-being of the communities we serve.
We recognize that our Suppliers play an important role in achieving our success and best-in-class performance in our supply chains. Accordingly, we strive to develop mutually rewarding relationships with Suppliers who share and promote our values and high ethical standards within their organizations, operate with integrity in a legally, socially and environmentally responsible manner, and drive out cost while innovating to increase value.
To reinforce our culture of ethics and integrity and help our Suppliers understand and adhere to Royal Caribbean’s expectations and standards, we have established Supplier Guiding Principles which are consistent with our employee Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. Royal Caribbean endorses the principles contained within the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, United Nations Global Compact Principles, and International Labor Organization’s conventions, which are also formalized in our Human Rights Statement and Core Labor Principles.
We are mindful of differences in culture and the challenges associated with interpreting and implementing a common set of principles globally, however, we believe that the expectations set forth in the Supplier Guiding Principles are universal.
We urge you to review the Supplier Guiding Principles carefully and become familiar with its content. You must follow these guidelines and use good judgment in making the right decisions when conducting business for or on behalf of Royal Caribbean.
Thank you for your continued commitment to Royal Caribbean’s culture of trust and integrity.
Senior Vice President and Global Supply Chain Officer
