  • Our supplier relationships are established for the long term, with an average of 18.5 years.
  • Each year, we record the total greenhouse gas emissions of our purchased parts and try to positively influence this.

Supplier evaluation

  • We use a sustainability criteria to evaluate suppliers. No new orders will be awarded to suppliers who do not meet the minimum score for sustainability.
  • SME friendly: in addition to certificates, we also honour uncertified, individual sustainability measures.

Dual risk approach

  • With more than 1,400 suppliers and over 9,000 items, there is a high level of complexity.
  • Geographical risk avoidance approach:
    We source approximately 54.93% of our purchased parts from within Germany, and another 20,63% originate within the EU. More than 75% of our purchased parts are manufactured in the EU (as of July 2020) – we consider non-European products to have a higher risk probability.
  • Certificate-based risk avoidance approach:
    Among the things we take into consideration when selecting suppliers are: Ethical standards as well as environmental and energy certificates.
