Cherry picking for the benefit of our customers
After all, we have plenty of partners. 1 800 small, medium-sized and large companies supply their goods to us and support us with services.
We select each one carefully to ensure that they share our values, and review the quality and safety of their products. In our procurement conditions, we clearly state that our supply chain must meet exemplary demands, from start to finish.
Our ambition and goals
Ties that stand the test of time
We are fastidious in our selection of suppliers, particularly in the area of paper procurement. Given that paper makes up the largest proportion of our procurement volume across the Group, we know every single one of our suppliers. We are in constant communication with each of these partners and carry out regular audits.
As soon as quality is no longer up to scratch and is not improved, we call it a day.
By 2030, we want all our direct suppliers to have achieved ‘category A’ in their self-audit. We use the following measures to consistently implement and enforce our sustainability requirements within the supply chain:
- Our sustainability requirements are put into practice across the entire Model Group and expanded to also cover the procurement of additives.
- We choose suppliers that already satisfy the demands of category A, or help them to get there.
- We are continuing to scale up supplier self-audits.
