Treating suppliers fairly – invoicing and payment

This webpage outlines abrdn's commitment to fair and timely supplier payments while promoting responsible business practices throughout the supply chain.

Ensuring prompt payment for our valued suppliers

We value positive and lasting partnerships with our suppliers. This includes clear communication and timely payment. We are committed to paying invoices within 30 days of receipt of a valid invoice.

To expedite invoice processing, please ensure it includes:

  • Purchase order number
  • Correct abrdn entity name
  • Total amount due
  • Correct address
Please submit invoices to abrdns accounts payable team.

If you have any questions regarding invoice requirements, such as missing purchase order numbers, please get in touch with your abrdn business contact.

Responsible business practices

At abrdn, we recognise the importance of responsible business practices throughout our supply chain. We strive to minimise our environmental and social impact, and we expect the same commitment from our valued suppliers.

All suppliers are required to adhere to our Global Third Party Code of Conduct, which includes our Supplier Sustainability Expectations.

To report any concerns about a supplier’s practices that may violate our code of conduct, please get in touch with your abrdn business contact. Alternatively, you can report anonymously through our independent Speak Up service, operated by Safecall:

To promote and encourage responsible practices throughout our supply chain, we partner with EcoVadis, a leading sustainability rating platform. We encourage suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to ESG practices. For more information, please see abrdn plc (
