In 2016 we circulated a CSR questionnaire amongst our suppliers. We visited our suppliers and implemented an inquiry in order to objectively understand the current state of the CSR practices. This was implemented with a consideration for the degree of dependence and importance in regards to the products.
With a focus on our key values (Fair Selection & Sound Dealings of Suppliers, Consideration for Human Rights and the Environment, Product Quality, Improvement, & Safety Preservation, Drive Sustainable Procurement) we posed 65 questions, a number decided upon with consideration for the current state of our suppliers.
We have specified the most important issues and are formulating the 2017 CSR procurement activities, based on the results of the 2016 questionnaire and inquiry into the state of the CSR procedures.
