Sustainable Supplier Management
Sandvik is committed to sustainable procurement practices that minimize our negative societal and environmental impacts, improve the sustainability performance of our suppliers and create value for business, our customers and society at large. It is important for us to partner with suppliers who understand and embrace our sustainability standards in areas such as environment, labor, human rights, anti-corruption, circularity of materials and carbon footprint. Our requirements are part of our 2030 sustainability goals and are outlined in our Supplier Code of Conduct, which was updated in 2020 and will be published in 2021. The responsibility of development and implementation of sustainable supplier management is decentralized and lies within each division.
