“In order to realize our strategic commitment of adding value with sustainability, we need to cooperate with parties across the entire value chain, including our suppliers. Therefore, it is vital to further embed procurement across multiple departments to engage everyone in selecting and managing those suppliers that meet our expectations in terms of sustainability and overall risk management. It is great to see these efforts being recognized externally as well”, said Hans Bohnen, member of Clariant's Executive Committee.
The panel of 25 globally appointed judges who evaluated the World Procurement Awards recognized Clariant for its "implementation of a holistic risk management process that provides real time information for assessing its supply chain.” The independent judging panel of the EcoVadis Sustainable Procurement Leadership Awards commended Clariant for “having demonstrated excellent organization structure and integration of procurement into group-wide sustainability efforts.”
“Integrating sustainability and risk management across our supply chains and organization is a cross-departmental responsibility and requires a broad commitment in order to be a success”, said Markus Mirgeler, Head of Clariant Group Procurement Services. “Therefore, on behalf of everyone involved, I am very proud of Clariant winning these awards and see it as both a great recognition for the work that was done so far as well as a great inspiration to keep pushing ourselves forward.”
