For AMAG, the most ecological and fair procurement possible of raw materials and supplies forms part of sustainable corporate management.The purchasing department is responsible for the centralised purchasing of tangible assets, services, and supplies for all AMAG companies at the Ranshofen site.
In addition to competitive prices, quality, reliability and flexibility, ecological and social aspects are taken into consideration in purchasing decisions. A set of binding purchasing guidelines for supplies, overhead materials, capital goods, services and energy defines the central purchasing principles and procedures. This stipulates that all suppliers must comply with the compliance rules for AMAG suppliers. Furthermore, suppliers are required to comply with the legal and internal regulations on environmental protection and occupa-tional health and safety.
With the help of an SAP assessment based on a points system, suppliers are evaluated according to the criteria of logistics, quality, supply relationship and information security. A- and B-suppliers (according to purchase volume) as well as defined C-suppliers (of production-related materials) are to be assessed at least annually and notified in writing if they fall below the minimum number of points.
For more informations, please see annual report 2021.
In the purchasing process, emphasis is placed on regional added value. In the 2021 reporting year, for example, numerous contracts were awarded to regional suppliers (e.g. workwear, photovoltaic system, electrics, hall lighting, transport logistics, etc.). More than two thirds of the suppliers of property, plant and equipment, services as well as auxiliary materials and supplies come from Austria.
2022 target / medium term:
In the 2021 financial year, significant orders worth EUR 109.3 million were placed in Upper Austria (2020: EUR 93.6 million), of which EUR 64.7 million were placed in the Innviertel region (2020: EUR 49.1 million).
Thanks to the high proportion of orders awarded locally and the prominent presence of suppliers’ personnel at the site (accommodation, gastronomy, commerce), companies within the region and the federal state of Upper Austria benefit from the growth path of AMAG.
Since the reporting year 2017, AMAG has published a summarized non-financial statement in her management report, thereby fulfilling her reporting obligation in accordance with the Sustainability and Diversity Improvement Act (NaDiVeG). It summarizes the essential information for AMAG on the five required aspects of environmental issues, employee issues, social issues, respect for human rights, anti-corruption and bribery.
