Recticel Supplier Sustainability Requirements

Sustainable innovation is a central pillar of the Recticel Group strategy and our suppliers are key in achieving our sustainability ambitions. Only through partnerships can we realise the transition towards a low-carbon society and circular economy.

When we select new suppliers, or when we evaluate our partnerships with existing suppliers, we discuss how their innovations in terms of resource efficiency, renewable materials and closing the loop can help us to achieve our carbon footprint targets. Our cooperation with Covestro on a CO2 polyol for the production of flexible foams for mattresses is an example of such a partnership.

Our suppliers are indispensable in helping us achieve a more sustainable value chain. We expect every supplier and its subcontractors to uphold the same standards as Recticel. In 2015, to promote complete transparency, we introduced our Recticel Supplier Sustainability Requirements (RSSR) to ensure safe, environment-friendly, ethical and respectful working conditions throughout the supply chain. 

In 2017, we integrated the RSSR in our General Terms and Conditions.
