Supply Chain

Locally established – globally committed

We source raw materials from around the world for our business. We apply the high standards that we place on our products to our entire value chain – from raw material extraction to metal production. Along our supply chain, we support uniform international sustainability standards. 

For Aurubis, responsibility in the supply chain is one of the key topics of the Sustainability Strategy.

We respect human rights and advocate for their protection. Because they are of fundamental significance to us, we adhere to the internationally recognized core labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO). We have been a part of the United Nations Global Compact since December 2014 and are thus committed to working on implementing its ten principles related to human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption.

We expect our business partners to follow not only local laws but also UN sanctions and trade restrictions as well as UN conventions related to human rights, environmental protection, and safety.

In the past several years, Aurubis has increased its commitment to adhering to major guidelines for sustainable business from international organizations. This includes the OECD’s Due Diligence Guidance. These guidelines outline a responsible, global supply chain management system for the processing of conflict-free raw materials.
