Sustainable Supply Chains
Sustainable supply chains enable us to achieve our long-term strategy ambitions.
It is essential that we collaborate to enhance supplier sustainability and to implement the activities that bring us closer to reaching our ambitions. This section outlines our activities to advance supply chain sustainability.
