At LANXESS, raw and other materials, plant and services must satisfy globally uniform safety and environmental protection requirements. The Global Procurement & Logistics (GPL) Group function, the head of which reports directly to Board of Management member Dr. Hubert Fink, is responsible for procurement of these items. In close coordination with our business units, GPL organizes Group-wide procurement, sets corresponding guidelines and initiates measures to promote purchasing synergies and
sustainable operations of our suppliers.
Across the LANXESS Group, a global procurement directive defines how our employees should behave toward suppliers and their employees. In addition, we have specified standardized procedures relating to procurement more fully in process descriptions. Based on the principles of the U.N. Global Compact, the International Labour Organization (ILO), Responsible Care® and other corporate responsibility codes, we expect our suppliers to comply with all applicable national and other laws and regulations in order to safeguard the environment, ensure health and safety in the workplace and deploy appropriate labor and hiring practices. These provisions of our Supplier Code of Conduct are key criteria in our selection and evaluation of suppliers.
As a founder of the Together for Sustainability (TfS) initiative, we aim to promote sustainability, enhance supply chain transparency and thus further minimize procurement risks. This initiative, supported by 20 international chemical companies with a cumulative procurement volume of more than €220 billion, aims to
implement and enhance a global audit program to assess and continuously improve sustainability activities along the chemical industry supply chain. It focuses on human rights, the prevention of child labor, working standards, occupational safety, environmental protection and business integrity.
