Sustainable procurement

We attach great importance to sustainability along the entire value chain. To this end, we are committed to the responsible use of resources, compliance with human rights conventions and environmental protection laws. We expect our suppliers and partners to share this approach and also ensure ethical behaviour as well as social responsibility in their production and delivery.
We ensure that all suppliers go through a thorough supplier approval process. This checks for the existence of a certified quality management system, compliance with energy and environmental management standards, and legal requirements such as RoHS or REACH.
Our Code of Conduct for Suppliers and regular on-site audits are further important instruments for ensuring sustainable procurement.
