Create a sustainable supply chain

A significant part of the environmental and social impact in our value chain is upstream of our own operations. To safeguard an overall positive environmental and social impact of our biobased products, we therefore need to ensure our supply chain is sourced in a responsible way.

In 2015 we aligned our responsible sourcing strategy with the updated Corbion strategy. We will tackle our raw materials with the largest business impact and the highest sustainability risks first. Based on a risk assessment, we have determined the following priority crops: sugar cane, soy, corn, wheat, and palm. Together these crops represent about 90% of our agricultural-derived raw materials by quantity.

We have defined generic mandatory requirements for all of our raw materials, as specified in our supplier code. We have updated our supplier code this year and are now requesting our suppliers to sign it for confirmation. We are currently working on the integration of sustainability criteria into our supplier risk assessment, and will include sustainability criteria in the evaluation of new suppliers from 2016 onwards.
