Purchasing and supplier management

In 2015, the geographical scope of the TfS initiative was widened once again, particularly in emerging markets. The shared challenges of supply chains in Brazil were discussed at a supplier meeting with more than 300 participants in São Paulo. From the left: Lucilene De Morais of Oxiteno with Fernanda Escarim, Bertrand Conquéret and Ricardo Filho of Henkel Purchasing.

Together with our partners, we assume our responsibility along the entire value chain, jointly developing innovative solutions and setting new standards.

Henkel currently has suppliers and other business partners from around 130 countries. More than 70 percent of our purchasing volume comes from countries that belong to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). However, we are increasingly opening up new purchasing markets in countries that are not OECD members. We place the same exacting demands on suppliers worldwide. Our suppliers are assessed in a comprehensive process that covers sustainability performance and risks as well as key commercial and operating indicators.
