Responsible purchasing means taking into account social, environmental and ethical considerations, as well as cost, quality and delivery time. Our goal is to minimize negative impacts and make a positive contribution to the businesses, people and communities that make up our supply chain.
We expect our suppliers to likewise act responsibly towards their stakeholders and in their supply chain.
In practice this means to have a system to evaluate supplier performance and to actively work to accomplish improvements where a certain supplier does not comply with demands or meet acceptable standards.
It is no longer enough that companies understand their risks. We all need to ramp up our efforts and work to achieve positive and measurable change.
