The thyssenkrupp Supplier Code of Conduct outlines our understanding of sustainability and compliance as well the standards to be met by our suppliers. Some of the key topics addressed are:
As we are committed to treating employees, customers, suppliers and local residents responsibly and with fairness, we expect our suppliers to share this commitment with us. We expects from our suppliers that all their business activities fully comply with applicable national and international laws and regulations, with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and with the requirements and standards laid out in the thyssenkrupp Supplier Code of Conduct.
Since May 2013, we have been inviting our suppliers to sign the thyssenkrupp Supplier Code of Conduct. We strive to work only with suppliers whose business activities fully comply with the principles of this Supplier Code of Conduct, who sign the related documents upon request, support all related thyssenkrupp sustainability processes, and ensure that their own suppliers also meet the documented thyssenkrupp standards.
