We endeavour to conduct our business relationships in a spirit of fairness, with the optimisation of quality and costs being important to us here. Therefore every year we conduct a comprehensive supplier evaluation in which our TOP 50 suppliers are assessed according to the following criteria:
- Delivery reliability
- Volume reliability
- Product quality
- Price policy
- Scope of support
- Environment policy
- Fitness for purpose of product packaging
We also place great emphasis on conducting fair business relationships with our suppliers and on jointly developing and using any new potential.
In addition to cost and quality, and as part of our sustainability strategy going forward, we plan to consider ecological and social aspects even more in our procurement processes. Therefore we will be revising our supplier evaluation taking this aspect into consideration. We are also working towards creating a Code of Conduct.
