THE BEST STEEL FOR ALL OF US IS ETHICALLY AND QUALITATIVELY SOUND
It is important to us at voestalpine that our products make a positive contribution to people and the environment. That's why we work with suppliers we can trust 100%, and we only buy materials that we know will meet our standards.
We don't rely on a gut feeling, but we carefully examine every link in our supply chain on a regular basis.
CLEAR MINDSET, CLEAR GOAL
When it comes to sustainability, everyone at voestalpine and our suppliers work together. This is important for our purchasing employees who know how important it is in their processes and where the no-goes are.
We invest a lot of time and money in raising awareness by providing comprehensive training. The same applies to the careful selection of suppliers.
And it pays off: Sustainably sourced raw materials for our steelmaking processes are worth it to us. We rely on proven procurement processes and count on sustainable economic parameters to make sure that we always choose the best market option.
OUR SUPPLIERS ARE JUST AS GREEN AS WE ARE
You can't choose your relatives, but you can certainly choose your suppliers: All of our suppliers are subjected to a rigorous selection process and must prove that they meet our very demanding ecological and social standards. Annual on-site inspections for each category of raw materials (i.e. ore, coal/coke) are mandatory to ensure that our corporate responsibility guidelines are being followed. This also helps us meet the goals we have pledged to fulfill as part of our certification by the non-profit "ResponsibleSteel".
We make no exceptions and ensure that our products are of the highest quality in every respect.
