Our Approach to Our Suppliers
Where possible, we work with local suppliers in order to support the local economy and minimise our environmental footprint.
Sustainable procurement practices
We work hard to build long-term business relationships with our partners and suppliers on the basis of mutual respect, trust, and reliability. Together with our suppliers, we work on providing optimal solutions for our customers. We are also committed to sustainability in our relationships with our suppliers. We do not have business relations with suppliers that are known violators of the principles on which the UN Global Compact is based.
The procurement process is handled at our individual entities. Every supplier undergoes a screening process, before Christof Industries decides to purchase from them. The supplier assessment is conducted based on quality-specific and HSE risk categories, procurement-specific risks and a credit rating. The suppliers are then classified based on a calculated score.
