Collaboration with impact
As part of our sustainability ambition, we have set the target to reduce our Scope 3 emissions – upstream and downstream emissions from purchased goods and services – by 19.7% by 2035. When it comes to achieving this target, what carries the biggest weight is collaborating with our suppliers and embedding transparency and accountability along the way.
In 2021, Bekaert launched the Wire Rod Supplier Campaign focused on innovation. We targeted wire rod suppliers because steel wire rod is the main raw material we use to manufacture steel wire products, representing more than half of our total spend of purchases.
