Kemira wants to ensure a reliable, safe and responsible supply chain from end-to-end: from the procurement of raw materials to the final product and delivery to our customers. We source our raw materials responsibly and assess our suppliers against strict criteria. Some 23% of all raw materials used by us are recycled or industrial by-products from external partners. We conduct sustainability assessments on our suppliers, and ensure they meet our strict requirements for responsible business conduct, accepting our Code of Conduct for Business Partners.
Our Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality program is built on three guiding principles:
- Zero environmental harm
- Zero harm to people
- Customer satisfaction
We measure and track our performance on each of these, actively identifying opportunities for continuous improvement.
Our logistics network guarantees a reliable chemical supply, worldwide. The focus is on good visibility of delivery status, optimized loads and routes, safety and customer satisfaction.
Interested in becoming a supplier?
All of the significant suppliers covering more than 40% of Kemira’s annual spend have signed a contract to undergo a human rights screening. The contract commits the suppliers to fair and equal treatment of their workforce, and specific attention is paid to not using child labor in any of their operations.
New suppliers have to undergo a minimum requirement screening that checks compliance with applicable laws, the Kemira Code of Conduct, and the Kemira Code of Conduct for suppliers, agents and distributors, and a risk assessment.
