Supply chain management
Wärtsilä’s supplier requirements address both general features and issues relating to quality, product-specific requirements, environmental management, occupational health and safety, social responsibility and legal compliance. These requirements are included in standard supply contracts. Wärtsilä regularly controls that suppliers comply with these requirements using performance indicators and audits. Suppliers must demonstrate compliance with these requirements in order to receive approved supplier status. The main priorities in Wärtsilä’s supplier evaluations are supplier selection, conformance with requirements and performance reviews.
