When it comes to Corporate
Responsibility, we intend to lead the way. An economically healthy company
provides security for the future and jobs, and continuously works for the good
of society and the environment. For Evoqua, Corporate Responsibility means
providing outstanding and innovative products and services for society while
fulfilling all ethical, economic, ecological and social responsibilities.
These goals apply in particular to our entire value chain. With a material
cost contribution amounting to some 50% of our sales, Procurement has an
important status at Evoqua. We are aware that, in conducting our global
procurement activities, we exert a significant influence on the society and
environment within our procurement markets. Sustainable economic management is
therefore an integral part of Evoqua's procurement policy. For this reason, we
expect our suppliers not only to contribute to Evoqua's economic success, but
also to adhere strictly to our Code of Conduct for Evoqua Suppliers. Suppliers
must also ensure that these binding rules are implemented and observed within
their own supply chain.
It is our declared objective to work with our suppliers to ensure the
sustainable implementation of the principles set down in the Code of Conduct
for Evoqua Suppliers.
