Aligned partnerships based on transparency

Our reliable supplier network makes a major contribution to value creation, quality and innovation and consequently to the success of IM and our customers. We work with more than 600 suppliers and that is why it is crucial that our partners fulfil high quality standards at all times.

We advocate transparency and fairness when it comes to supplier relationships and expect quality, security of supplies, competitive prices, and innovation in return.

Responsible purchasing

Sustainable material management is an important part of our sustainability commitments. We are aware of our societal impact and that is why we expect our suppliers to adhere to the same standards of conduct and behaviour as we do.

In accordance with globally accepted guidelines and principles, IM Conflict Mineral Policy sets out the core sustainability requirements for all suppliers that need to get back to us with a completed Conflict Mineral Reporting Template (CMRT).
