Each supplier of products or services that participates in our purchasing process completes a CSR survey in which they are required to provide information on:
- social responsibility activities,
- compliance with the criteria concerning employment practices and respect for human rights,
- compliance with environmental criteria (the environmental impact of goods and services).
When evaluating offers, we take into account the level of social responsibility activity assessed on the basis of a questionnaire. It can be decisive when selecting a new supplier.
By requiring all suppliers invited to participate in the bank’s procurement processes to complete a CSR survey, we make some companies aware of the topic of social responsibility for the first time. The educational impact of our survey is tangible.
