Operations and Supply Chain

Throughout our operations and supply chain, we commit to:

  • Achieve a customer satisfaction score of 85%


  • 100% of our employees trained on our Integrity Principles on an annual basis

Supply Chain

  • Actively promote SGS sustainability principles & values in our supply chain. By 2023 at least 50% of our goods & services spend will be supplied by suppliers who have signed our Code of Conduct or commit to comparable standards to SGS's within their own policy. 100% of the selected SGS strategic suppliers will have completed our Sustainability Self-Assessment Questionnaire
  • 75% of our RFP (Requests For Proposal) will be online and will include the relevant SGS sustainability criteria, enabling comparison and selection of suppliers
  • Actively contribute to the reduction of our SGS CO2 footprint by sourcing energy efficient solutions from our suppliers
  • Leverage SGS buying power to request strategic suppliers to report their own CO2 footprint and subsequently target carbon reduction in their own operations
