Sustainable Procurement ESG KPI

The Sustainable Procurement ESG KPI img remained on a stable level against the prior-year figure. The share of the procurement volume that has been risk-assessed momentarily amounts to 81 percent. Over the next two years, we expect our Sustainable Procurement ESG KPI to remain stable at a high level. Our aim is to keep a coverage of at least 80 % until 2020.

We measure the degree to which our procurement volume is covered by sustainable activities with the Sustainable Procurement ESG KPI. It measures the share of procurement volume we obtain from suppliers where one or several Group companies of the corporate group have been assessed for compliance with our social and environmental standards by way of self-assessments and/or audits. This also applies for audits carried out on subcontractors. In the coming years we expect our Sustainable Procurement ESG KPI to stay at a constant level.
