Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) - Sustainability Questionnaire


The NQC SAQ 5.0 is a supplier self-assessment questionnaire for the automotive (supply) industry that can be completed by companies to evaluate their sustainability performance. The questionnaire contains a series of questions on various sustainability topics such as energy and resource efficiency, waste management, supply chain management and social responsibility.

The NQC SAQ 5.0 was developed by a group of sustainability experts and is based on proven methods and standards for sustainability assessments. The questionnaire is designed to be applicable to companies of all sizes and industries.

Performance in Sustainability - voestalpine Wire Technology achieves best results in NQC Supplier Assurance Rating

Excellent results were achieved by the voestalpine Wire Technology sites in Bruck an der Mur and St. Peter/Freienstein. With a sustainability performance of 91% (voestalpine Wire Rod Austria) and 92% (voestalpine Wire Austria), the activities and measures of both Wire Technology companies are absolutely impressive in comparison.

This SAQ score is an indicator of the company's sustainability performance. It is also a measure of the company's performance compared to the industry average and the average SAQ score for the country of the respective company location.

The result of the NQC SAQ 5.0 rating confirms the constant and excellent performance of the respective teams within voestalpine Wire Austria and voestalpine Wire Rod Austria, for which I would like to thank them wholeheartedly.
