Time to survey our suppliers – the ball is rolling.

In recent months, we’ve started work on surveying our suppliers. It may seem simple, but it will take a long time, probably several years.

We’ve now sent out a number of questionnaires to our suppliers, and it’s clear that many of them are only in the early stages of their sustainability work.

EPD and suppliers’ suppliers

There’s an international system for transparently declaring the environmental impact of materials and products: EPD (Environmental Product Declarations). Many of our suppliers tell us they’re looking into it, but so far only one supplier has got back to us with a declaration.

Here we’re talking about our direct suppliers. Then we have their suppliers – and, who knows, perhaps our suppliers’ suppliers’ suppliers. We want to build partnerships that enable us all to help each other to find solutions, and have a positive impact that benefits us all. Let’s see where this ends. At least we’ve got the ball rolling.
