A crucial part of product and service sustainability is related to supply chains. That is why Sampo Group companies place emphasis on the sustainability of their suppliers. The Group companies work with their suppliers and partners to drive high standards across supply chains.
If sees that it can have a positive impact not only on its own products and services but on society in general, if it encourages sustainability in its supply chains. If is committed to encouraging and supporting its suppliers and partners in their efforts to use more sustainable methods in their operations.
If has a Supplier Code of Conduct, which defines the minimum requirements that If asks suppliers to comply with when conducting business with If. The code covers the areas of human rights, labor rights, the environment including climate change, and anti-corruption, and it is based on the ten principles of the UN Global Compact and its underlying conventions and declarations.
All employees who purchase products or services within the areas of office procurements, claims handling, and claims settlement must incorporate the Supplier Code of Conduct into the relevant purchasing agreement. This applies both to new agreements and to agreements that are to be renewed.
If’s target is that 75 per cent of the company’s suppliers should have signed the code by the end of 2021.
If has close cooperation with its suppliers, and the company performs regular monitoring, using reporting and physical meetings to ensure that the suppliers comply with the company’s requirements.
If has set additional sector-specific environmental and health-related requirements for vehicle and property repair contractors. If’s priority is to ensure that waste and materials from vehicle and property repair processes are managed in the best possible way. Therefore, If focuses on increasing the recycling and reuse of undamaged vehicle parts instead of disposing of them, as well as reducing the amount of waste from property repairs. If has also set expected levels of plastic repairs, as well as used parts, for individual contractors. The contractors report levels of plastic repairs and used parts monthly, and they document repair processes and methods in repair calculation systems.
