Responsible supplier relations

As part of the Volkswagen Group, we have adopted the “Sustainability in Supplier Relations” concept. The “Sustainability in Supplier Relations” concept is based on three main pillars: requirements, monitoring, and development. The idea is to minimize and prevent negative social, environmental, and financial impact along our supply chain.

  • Supplier monitoring

    In order to identify and minimize risks early on, we use the Self-Assessment Questionaire (SAQ). Our business partners are asked to complete the SAQ and to document which measures they have taken in selected areas. The SAQ, which is widely used in the industry, was developed by the Volkswagen Group together with other automotive groups. MAN also appoints independent auditors to conduct sustainability audits, which scrutinize our suppliers for compliance with environmental, social, and human rights standards.
