Leading the change in sustainable procurement

BEWI Partner

Environmental, social, and ethical performance

At BEWI, environmental, social, and ethical performance is fundamental to today’s business landscape. We prioritize high ethical standards in our purchasing process and have developed a sustainable strategy focused on sustainable procurement, which is vital to our success.

Around 90% of our emissions come from our value chain. BEWI Partner, our digital tool, helps us ensure our suppliers meet our sustainability requirements. The platform allows us to send questionnaires, request documentation, and conduct risk assessments on our suppliers.

By using BEWI Partner, we aim to:

Identify critical suppliers
Collaborate with suppliers to improve sustainability
Follow-up audits

We are committed to working with our suppliers to enhance their sustainability performance and comply with regulations like the Norwegian transparency act. We report yearly on our suppliers’ environmental and social assessments in line with the Global Reporting Index.

Rakel Kristoffersen, Sustainable Procurement Specialist at BEWI ASA.

“As we move forward, we will continue improving our platform, integrating additional questions on information security and human rights, and ensuring all our business units prioritize supplier evaluations. We can collectively create a greener and more ethical future by embracing change and putting sustainability at the forefront of our decision-making process.”
