For business partners

​​Our suppliers are essential strategic partners in achieving the high level of quality we expect in our products, services and operations.

We establish solid, enduring relationships with them​ based on a common goal: building outstanding vehicles to fully meet the expectations of customers in every market.

 

 

Our supplier selection process takes many factors into account, including business, environmental and social aspects.

Whenever feasible, we strive to work with local suppliers in order to generate employment opportunities and income in the communities where we operate, as well as minimize transport-related environmental impacts.

 

​​

​​

​​​​​​​​​Synergy built on projects and values

We choose suppliers based not just on the quality and competitiveness of their products and services, but also based on their respect of global social, ethical and environmental principles. The degree to which suppliers embrace these global standards is monitored through tools such as self-assessments and on-site audits.

New supplier contracts require our business partners to adhere to the Group’s Code of Conduct and Supplier Sustainability Guidelines.

 

 

 

​​​ 

​​​​​We evaluate risks within the supply chain.

We have adopted a risk map to identify potentially critical issues.​ The factors we analyze are: turnover and any financial risk factors; potentially critical issues associated with location; exposure to commodity risk; ​the outcome of self-assessment que​stionnaires and of sustainability audits.

​​

​​​​​​​Involvement, participation and communication.

These are the tools we rely on to build a work relationship with our partners based on mutual trust. ​We promote dialogue and exchange on many sustainability-related issues through a variety of forums, including Technology Days, Supplier Town Halls, Supplier Training Week and dedicated websites for sharing information and initiatives. The SUPER (SUpplier Product Enhancement Reward) program is another way we engage our supply base. This program encourages suppliers to search for innovative solutions, and shares with them the economic benefit of the technologies they propose.

 

Aiming for constant improvement, we support our business partners that are interested in applying the World Class Manufacturing production standard, which is recognized worldwide.
