Improving sustainability practices in the supply chain
By acting responsibly in collaboration with our suppliers, we aim to minimize risks and create stable, long-term business relationships with our partners. It is also an important strategic lever for Covestro in safeguarding both its global competitiveness and the supply of materials and services. For this reason, the company applies not just economic standards, but also environmental, social and corporate governance standards in choosing new suppliers or continuing its relationships with existing ones. These standards are defined in Covestro’s Supplier Code of Conduct, which generally forms the basis for our collaboration with suppliers.
