Supplier Code of Conduct

Setting sustainability standards

The Supplier Code of Conduct which sets forth key social, ecological and ethical standards that the Covestro expects its suppliers to share.

The Supplier Code of Conduct is based on the principles of the U.N. Global Compact and our Human Rights Policy Statement.

The principles expressed in Covestro’s Supplier Code of Conduct comprise an important component of supplier selection and evaluation. Moreover, we expect our suppliers to replicate these standards further down the supply chain. The Code of Conduct is therefore made available to our suppliers with the goal of strengthening our mutual understanding of how sustainability should be practiced in day-to-day business.
