Share

What is our roadmap for sustainability with our suppliers?

 

  • Institutional sustainability is not only the management of our company's economic, social and environmental impacts, but also the complement with the activities of our suppliers towards sustainability. Our roadmap is a guide for increasing our suppliers' sustainability performance.

  • Our Responsible Purchasing Policy, prepared for our suppliers, is designed to ensure that our suppliers' business practices comply with Arçelik Global Ethical Principles and legal rules. We expect our suppliers to carry out all operations with integrity, by respecting human rights and protecting the interests of their employees.

  • We carry out "Business Ethics Audits" through independent bodies to create safe, dignified and respectful working conditions for your employees and to support at protecting the environment.

  • We expect all of our suppliers to establish environment and energy management systems and undertake continuous improvement in order to increase their environmental performance.
