Procurement in the supply chain

Responsible action begins in procurement. At LANXESS, all the raw and other materials, plant and services needed for our operations must satisfy uniform global safety and environmental protection requirements. Raw materials in particular are subject to stringent monitoring to ensure safe processing in our production facilities. For example, the procurement of any raw material is dependent on the submission by the supplier of a current safety data sheet. Our procurement department clarifies which of the REACH requirements must be satisfied in the case of raw materials from non-European suppliers. In order to minimize our procurement risks and enhance supply chain transparency, we and five other international chemicals companies founded the Together for Sustainability initiative in 2012. Further detailed information is contained in the “Procurement and production” section in the combined management report.
