It’s important that our suppliers embrace the same ethical standards as we do
A large part of our business relies on collaboration with our suppliers. These relationships are usually long-lasting and without them we would not be able to create the best-in-class products and services that we do. Companies that want to be suppliers to us need to share our values and embrace the same ethical behaviour that we do ourselves. To support and follow up on this we have an extensive governance structure with a strong focus on a responsible supply chain.
We use risk-based due diligence for all our suppliers with whom we engage and have a number of other procedures to satisfy ourselves that we only work with suppliers who have standards consistent with our own.
We value the relationships we have with our suppliers and the vital role they play in helping us to deliver equipment and services to our customers. We offer different kinds of support and programmes to help and collaborate with our suppliers.
