Ensuring responsible supplier management
The Danfoss Code of Conduct for Suppliers defines our environmental and social requirements. All suppliers are required to sign the Code of Conduct, and we perform regular supplier audits to verify compliance. Supplier risk assessment forms the basis for measures taken with the individual supplier. The risk assessment model includes the location of the supplier, which ensures that the highest priority is given to suppliers in the areas that pose the greatest risk of non-compliance.
Danfoss Procurement has dedicated specialists to handle supplier assessment. They ensure that the entire supply chain complies with the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact.
SNC, EDI and ERS
This is only used in Danfoss Power Solutions segment, but more segments are to be implemented soon.
Supply Network Collaboration (SNC) is a web-based collaboration platform through which we can provide our direct material suppliers with order and forecasting information.
The platform enables our suppliers to access our orders, Advanced Shipping Notification (ASN), Evaluated Receipts Settlements (ERS), goods receipt dates as well as purchase order history.
