Aker Solutions is committed to engaging suppliers that consistently operate in accordance with our values, comply with national laws and regulations and meet the company’s requirements for health and safety, quality management, environment, ethics, anti-corruption and social responsibility, including human rights and labor standards.
Responsible Supply Chain Management
Aker Solutions has developed a Supplier Qualification and Information System (SQiS) to ensure the required standards from its suppliers. The system helps to measure and predict supplier performance through a rigorous qualification, monitoring and performance evaluation process, providing a fact-based approach to supplier selection and development.
All suppliers are required to sign the Supplier and Subcontractor Declaration, confirming that they act responsibly in their organizations and with their own subcontractors. We last year updated our supplier qualification questionnaire to include more questions on human rights, anti-corruption and corporate responsibility, including higher requirements related to the CR certification from the International Standards Organization (ISO26000) and Social Accountability International (SA8000). Further, audits are conducted to verify answers in the questionnaire and investigate a supplier’s ability to meet Aker Solutions' requirements.
