The principles that Swisscom observes are stipulated in its purchasing policy, which is defined by an overarching committee, the Swisscom Purchasing Board. The purchasing policy sets out the principles and procedures to be followed by the procurement organisations and stipulates the requirements that suppliers accept by signing the Corporate Responsibility Contract Annex (CRCA). Swisscom uses a structured risk management system to review suppliers’ compliance with the requirements. It expanded this system on a conceptual level in 2016 and implemented it in the purchasing organisation. The system covers all risk areas along the supply chain.
