Supplier Quality Audit with Sustainability Module

Siemens sustainability requirements are also checked within the regular Supplier Quality Audit.

Process

Within the scope of the regular supplier quality audits, compliance with the requirements of the Code of Conduct for Siemens Suppliers is checked in the Sustainability module.

Focus

The respective Sustainability questions are integrated in all Quality audits in both higher and lower risk countries.

Measures

Having experienced an increase in the number of agreed improvement measures, we have been encouraged to concentrate even further on our auditing and capacity building efforts with our suppliers.

The agreed corrective measures do not predominantly reflect violations of the Code of Conduct for Siemens Suppliers, but apply mainly to structural improvements in the management systems for sustainable compliance with the requirements of the Code of Conduct (such as missing or incomplete policies, guidelines, information and training, organizational provisions).
