How do BAUX select suppliers?
BAUX supplier selection process follows a rigid and detailed qualification procedure with the ambition to find long term partners. BAUX’s main objective with suppliers goes beyond finding suppliers that can deliver our products. Instead, we seek long term partners that share the BAUX vision and are able to shape the future together with us. We build lasting relationships with our partners and collaboratively develop successful products. We work hard together, constantly striving to push the boundaries in sustainability, creativity, productivity, service levels and so on. Sustainability and environmental questions are always one of the first key criterias we look for. As a result, we always go beyond our suppliers to understand their sub-suppliers and the root source of all materials sourced, in order to make sure we can offer our customers the lowest possible environmental impact across the whole material chain. Beyond this we also require our suppliers to comply with IWAY requirements. Among other things this means that they have to prevent child labour, secure non-discrimination, compensate their workers with reasonable wages, provide safe and healthy work environments and much more.
