Want to become a supplier to ROCKWOOL?
In ROCKWOOL we engage with a large number of suppliers across different categories, both for direct and indirect materials and services. Our aim is to create strong, sustainable partnerships with our suppliers, from which both parties can benefit.
In order to engage in a commercial relation with ROCKWOOL, suppliers should start the registration process online by clicking here.
Upon registration, any new potential supplier is required to accept the current Supplier Code of Conduct, as well as the Non-Disclosure Agreement. If a supplier registers against any categories subject to REACH, they are prompted and required to report on the SVHC status of the products they wish to supply. If the Code of Conduct and the Non-Disclosure Agreement are not accepted, as well as REACH when applicable, ROCKWOOL will not do business with the supplier.
After the registration is completed, the supplier is categorized in the system as Pre-Qualified until approved by a Group Sourcing and Procurement Category Manager. The final approval is based on an assessment of requirements, responsible sourcing (risk, ethics etc.) and market analysis.
Upon approval by the Regional or International Category Manager, GSP ensures that the supplier is created in RockBis and made available to the required company codes.
All contracts are also managed through the on-line tool, thus any documentation or approvals are uploaded and sit in a repository in E-Procure.
Code of Conduct and Sustainable Sourcing
ROCKWOOL is committed to running its business on ethically and environmentally-sound principles, as we support the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the ten universal principles defined in the UN Global Compact relating to human rights, labour environment and anti-corruption.
We expect suppliers to comply with all international, national and local laws and guidelines relating to employment, environmental and manufacturing practices as well as ethics and bribery, particularly in relation to purchasing. We also expect suppliers to enforce these guidelines with their own suppliers.
A new supplier due diligence process with a more comprehensive and systematic approach to sustainable sourcing is currently being developed, and its full-implementation is expected to start in 2019. This approach focuses on a risk-assessment, audits and a collaborative approach focusing on sustainability development at the supplier.
