Sustainable supplier management
Sandvik is committed to sustainable procurement practices that minimize our negative social and environmental impacts, improve the sustainability performance of our suppliers and create value for the 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 and published during the year. The responsibility of development and implementation of sustainable supplier management is decentralized and lies within each division.
