Carbon footprint a.s.r. head office

Sustainable taxpayer

Socially Responsible Procurement
  • Assessing supplier's impact on society
    Operating in a responsible and sustainable manner is significant to a.s.r. From its suppliers a.s.r. expects the same. a.s.r. imposes additional requirements for its suppliers in the areas of environment, human rights and working conditions. The requirements are part of the procurement contacts concluded between a.s.r. and its suppliers. 
  • Screening
    a.s.r. does not undertake business with employees and business partners, including suppliers and customers involved in crime or socially undesirable acts, including money laundering, fraud and terrorist financing as it can seriously jeopardise its reputation and integrity. a.s.r. has a Customer Due Diligence (CDD) policy that requires screening before a contract is signed. In addition, the contract management policy stipulates that screenings are to be carried out on a periodical basis. If, in the opinion of a.s.r., there is reason to doubt the integrity of the supplier, appropriate measures are taken.
