Supplier assessment and audits
Neles conducts third-party sustainability supplier audits together with external auditing partners in certain countries. In addition, our procurement and quality assurance teams conduct internal sustainability supplier audits that include site visits.
The screening of new suppliers is included in our procurement processes, and our target is to evaluate all our new suppliers in higher-risk countries against our sustainability criteria. Based on the sustainability risk assessment of the new supplier, procurement decides on the need for an in-depth audit and/or further actions.
