Sustainable management of supply chains is of growing importance to our stakeholders, including customers and investors. The requirement documents below are including our current requirements on our suppliers to fulfill our wanted position in these areas.
All suppliers must complete a mandatory Supplier Self-Assessments that relate to all below requirement documents: Code of Conduct, Environmental and OHS requirements before they are selected. The self-assessment is a web-based questionnaire and is an important tool for evaluating existing and potential new suppliers to Ericsson.
The self-assessment is used to communicate Ericsson general requirements and expectations to our suppliers, to collect information for supplier and master data management, and to catch potential risks connected to a certain supplier. The outcome from the self-assessment is analyzed to ensure that proper actions are taken.
Suppliers not adhering to Ericsson’s requirements may be subject to termination of their contracts.
