Our supply chain is global and consists of well over 10,000 suppliers whereof 3,500 direct material suppliers, which makes it a great challenge to be fully aware of the impact on society. We have however started to roll out new procedures and tools to the companies within the NIBE Group, to increase knowledge about our indirect impact. As the procurement organisation to a large extent is decentralised, it will take some years before this will be fully implemented. For existing suppliers we are planning assessment according to the same procedures and criteria as we use for new suppliers.
