Identifying and selecting good partners are crucial to the sustainability of supply chains. Therefore, ensuring that sustainability of our supply chains begins before a deal has been closed or raw material being delivered.
All partners must meet our strict sustainability criteria and commit to developing their operations in the future. We evaluate counterparty, safety and reputation risks alongside an extensive sustainability assessment. We continue the commercial negotiations only with approved parties and agree on detailed conditions that the raw material must fulfil.
Knowing the origin of our renewable products is a basic requirement on which we will not compromise. Independent expert parties annually verify that all of the other strict sustainability requirements for renewable products are also followed. We cooperate with our long-term partners in the fields of training and communication, among others.
