We work with our suppliers as part of a trusting partnership. WACKER has expectations of its suppliers - but it also supports them. We value constructive, sustainable teamwork. That’s why we invest in a strong pool of new and longstanding suppliers
Our Supplier Management has a central function here. Throughout the company, teams specialized in classes of goods and raw materials and with all manner of different remits manage all of WACKER’s procurement processes to ensure our product quality, productivity and competitiveness for the longer term
WACKER has signed up to international initiatives such as Responsible Care® and Global Compact. This means we also expect our suppliers to observe the principles of sustainability. We also expect new suppliers to automatically provide us with detailed information about themselves, and we audit companies' environmental and social policy as part of the approval process.
Here, WACKER is intensifying its commitment to sustainable business practices in the supply chain. In addition, the company joined the chemical industry’s “Together for Sustainability” (TfS) initiative in 2015. Established in 2011, the organization uses a global program for responsible procurement of goods and services to improve the ecological and social standards of suppliers.
