Targets & Progress

FY18 Responsible Sourcing Targets FY18 Responsible Sourcing Progress
Ongoing target to ensure 100% of our suppliers assessed to our Vendor Qualification Process (VQP). 100% of suppliers are assessed to our VQP
95% of Global Direct spend and 100% of Global Point of Sale suppliers linked to Bacardi through Sedex. In addition, we will work with local teams to ensure local POS suppliers are using Sedex and completing SAQs. At the end of FY18, 88.5% of our Global Direct spend is linked to Bacardi through Sedex, with more than 50% of those linked audited. 100% of our Global Point of Sale suppliers are Sedex linked to Bacardi. We continue to have challenges in ensuring local POS suppliers are using Sedex and will work on an action plan on how to engage local teams to address these challenges moving forward.

Raw Material Action Plans:

• For grapes, work with Prosecco and Asti Consortiums to achieve highest level of standards with focus on environment, ethics, and economics; including for Asti a reduction of residual phito treatment (35%) and for white table wine a carbon footprint reduction (20%).

• Action plan defined for Agave suppliers to be sustainably certified.

• Botanicals action plan underway, our goal is for 60% of main botanicals sustainably certified by FY18, 100% by FY19.

• Continue to build on wheat supplier improvement programs.

• LEBLON® to achieve Bonsucro certification.

• During FY18 we worked with the Prosecco and Asti Consortiums, and Equalitas (focuses on the social, environmental and economic pillars of sustainability of the wine sector) to develop a plan to implement their standards for our grape suppliers. In FY19 we will initiate a gap assessment and identify the next steps for the certification process. The Asti Consortium is still working towards their ongoing residual phito treatment and carbon footprint reduction targets, hoping to achieve in crop FY19.

• In FY18, we worked with our Cazadores Agave suppliers to prepare for their Sedex linked audit. In addition, we are working with on-the-ground partners to assess certification options for Agave moving forward.

• The botanicals action plan is defined, and we are on track to have ECOCERT certification (a certification organization for sustainable development) for 50% of our main botanicals in 2018 and 100% in 2019.

• Our wheat supplier improvement program is ongoing, and we are working with our supplier on sustainable farming practices.

• In FY18, we were able to achieve Bonsucro certification for LEBLON®

For sugarcane-derived products for rum, ensure VQP audits for new suppliers and work with them to achieve Bonsucro certification by end of CY17. • As of end of CY17, all new suppliers have completed VQP audits and 86.3% of our sugarcane-derived products for BACARDÍ rum are sourced from Bonsucro-certified suppliers
Train all new strategic raw materials and packaging suppliers on Good Spirited program goals. Work with suppliers to achieve Forest Stewardship Council certification for labels and corrugated packaging.

• While ongoing suppliers received training on our Good Spirited program over the last few years, all new strategic raw materials and packaging suppliers were trained on our Good Spirited programs and long-term goals during FY18.

• As of mid-2018, 90% of our corrugated packaging suppliers are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)/Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)/Forestry Sustainable Initiative (FSI) certified.

• We are working with our individual box and label suppliers on action plans to achieve FSC certification.As of mid-2018, 52% of our individual boxes and 66% of our labels are sustainably certified.
