Highest level: NETZSCH procurement organisation successfully certified
To achieve the highest level of procurement certification, numerous different criteria and measures must be fulfilled. These include, among others, proof of a sustainable procurement strategy, the presentation of goals and guiding principles, a procurement risk analysis, and an action guideline for sustainable procurement. In addition, the third stage includes an on-site audit. Independent consultants checked the implementation of the sustainability programme in the company and how it is lived out.
NETZSCH also assumes social responsibility outside of the procurement organisation and is committed to contributing to developing a sustainable future because we are aware of our social and ecological responsibility.
