In the future, the risk component will be taken into account to an even greater extent.
After the introduction of new internal processes to control sustainability criteria for the Purchasing department in 2020, we will increase our focus on the sustainability performance of our suppliers in the future, including strategically. A risk assessment will be added to the existing procedure in order to better manage human rights and environmental risks in the supply chain in the future and to be compliant with the supply chain due diligence act. We aim to include and review all suppliers in an internal risk management system by 2025 at the latest. As part of our “Future Sustainable Brenntag” vision, we want to ensure that human rights are seamlessly upheld in our supply chain and living wages are paid.
