Beckers Supplier Award
The Beckers Supplier Award honors our suppliers for their efforts and commitment to improve the sustainability of their operations.
Beckers relies on raw materials developed and manufactured by our suppliers. Our upstream supply chain is crucial for our success and our environmental footprint. We want to inspire our supply chain partners to work with us and make a positive impact on our industry around the world. This inspired our annual Beckers Supplier Award.
Our initiative Chain Up! drives sustainability throughout our supply chain and is now an integral part of our supplier management. Together with EcoVadis, we invite essential suppliers to assess their sustainability management based on a point system. The minimum score we demand is 40 points in each of the four subcategories – environment, labor and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement. We have adopted EcoVadis’ online assessment as our standard tool to evaluate our raw material suppliers and many of our key partners are themselves now drawing on EcoVadis and have reached the sustainability threshold that we demand.
We established the Beckers Supplier Award to acknowledge the effort and commitment this involves. It is a formal recognition of the supplier that has made the most progress during the year. We work with outstanding partners and appreciate their efforts and commitment. We hope that more of our suppliers will join us on this journey. The Beckers Supplier Award is granted annually and the winner announced in the Beckers Sustainability Report. The award underlines our belief that we can advance sustainability standards across the industry with committed collaboration and clear communication.
