Our global supply chain is constantly evolving and increasingly integrated within our activities. More than ever, our suppliers' expertise play a critical role in designing and manufacturing advanced components for our products. This makes suppliers key partners in our success.
Along with this changing dynamic, the global economic recession created significant supply chain challenges. It is more crucial than ever to work closely with our suppliers and manage our supply chain responsibly. This means:
- Ensuring the efficiency and economic viability of our supply chain
- Enhancing the sustainability of our procurement processes
- Promoting respect for human rights and internationally sanctioned labour standards across our supply chain
Supplier Code of Conduct (CoC)
Bombardier Inc. voluntarily decided to sign the United Nations Global Compact because a strong commitment and a strategic approach to corporate responsibility are essential for managing the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing global environment. As the Transportation branch of Bombardier we hence issued our own Suppliers Code of Conduct (CoC) in line with the UN Global Compact with regard to:
- Legal compliance
- Health and safety
- Labour and human rights
- Supplier responsibility and commitment
Supplier Performance and Improvement
In Bombardier Transportation flawless execution of our projects is one of our priorities. We expect commitment and performance from our suppliers in order to support this initiative. Our supplier improvement teams constantly measure and review the performance of our suppliers, delivered goods and services. We have numerous Continuous Improvement activities with our suppliers, work out Supplier Development Plans and establish strategic partnerships.
