The ESG KPICR-Qualified Top 200 Suppliers“ is an internal management indicator which complements the ESG KPI “Sustainable Procurement”. While the ESG KPI “Sustainable Procurement” measures the share of procurement volume reviewed according to sustainability criteria, the KPI “CR-Qualified Top 200 Suppliers” reflects the share of suppliers from the Top 200 Suppliers pool. These are reviewed based on sustainability criteria according to Self-Assessments, Audits , Supplier Sustainability Workshops and Supplier Development Programs. The share of CR-qualified suppliers taken from the Top 200 pool amounts to 87 percent in 2019. Thus, our target to reach 75 percent by 2020 is already exceeded.„
In 2020, we will adopt a somewhat different approach to generating the KPIs for sustainable procurement so that we continue to meet current requirements.
