100% Responsible Sourcing
Our responsible sourcing approach focuses on sustainability aspects along our supply chains for the benefit of people and our planet with the aim of driving transformational change together with our partners. For this reason, we maintain intensive dialog and collaboration with our suppliers to promote sustainable practices and respect for human rights. Our mission is to go beyond compliance, to drive impact and change across our entire value chain, and to create sustainable value for our customers.
Our ongoing ambition is to commit to 100 percent responsible sourcing together with our partners. Based on a shared mindset and the responsibility we have as a global purchasing organization we strive to take responsible sourcing decisions globally, across all regions, business units, and material groups, based on our responsible sourcing strategy.
We are convinced that we can only establish sustainable procurement practices if every single decision-maker in the global supply chains acts in the spirit of sustainability. This requires a fundamental recognition of this responsibility, as well as adopting the right attitude and building skills and knowledge.
