Our requirement. Responsible suppliers.

To run a global business like ours, we rely on numerous suppliers and service providers. We consider factors like quality and shared values when forming such relationships and strive to work with those who conduct their businesses responsibly. In addition, we have developed a framework to monitor these relationships.

 

Supplier Code of Conduct and Third Party Risk Management

Credit Suisse strives to conduct its business in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner. We seek to ensure a work environment where integrity, fairness and professionalism are central values, as this is essential to our reputation and our brand.

Credit Suisse works with numerous suppliers or service providers from a broad range of sectors. We expect these partners to address risks responsibly and to conduct their business in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. We further expect them to strive for best practice, uphold high standards of ethics, honor the global and local environmental responsibilities and carefully mitigate risk. Our Supplier Code of Conduct (PDF) provides detailed information on these standards and aims to ensure that our external business partners respect human rights, labor rights, employment laws and environmental regulations.

To manage financial, operational and reputational risks and to meet the increasing regulatory requirements governing business relationships with third parties, Credit Suisse introduced the Third Party Risk Management (TPRM) Framework in 2016. Through TPRM, we assess potential environmental, social and labor law-related risks, among others, in connection with third parties. The framework also allows Credit Suisse to continuously monitor these relationships, to raise and track issues, and to thus better understand the associated risks and if necessary demand actions for improvement from suppliers and service providers.

Supplier Selection and Engagement

Credit Suisse wants to work with suppliers who share our values to deliver excellent services to our clients. We establish and maintain relationships with small local and large international suppliers, selected on merit.

Our approach of selecting the right supplier for externally sourced goods and services is driven by a combination of sourcing complexity and the strategic or tactical priority of the good or service. Credit Suisse Sourcing & Vendor Management professionals are responsible for identifying, defining, and executing the most appropriate sourcing strategy through close internal collaboration with functional and support experts within the bank as well as the requestors of the service or product.

The suppliers are chosen based on merit to best meet Credit Suisse's strategic objectives. Depending on the approach, most goods and services are sourced from predefined suppliers, supplemented by some local spot-buying.

 

Supplier Mix and Superior Client Service

Before we enter into business relationships with our suppliers, we carefully conduct an analysis to assess their suitability. Our supplier portfolio is subject to recurring screenings, health-checks, risk assessments, and supplier base optimizations conducted in order to ultimately ensure the best possible service to our banking clients.

All of these sourcing activities are coordinated and overseen by the global Credit Suisse Sourcing & Vendor Management Organization. Leveraging the global structure of our bank, we strive to find the optimal mix of suppliers with local, regional and global capabilities in the worldwide supplier base.

Supplier Diversity

Credit Suisse cares about establishing relationships with business that are often underrepresented in supplying the needs of major corporations. A diverse supply base helps us provide flexible and best-quality solutions at the best price for our clients. We are committed to supplier diversity in order to create and foster relationships with qualified underrepresented businesses, including but not limited to ethnic minority-, women-, lesbian/gay/bisexual and transgender (LGBT)-, disabled- and/or veteran-owned businesses that share our standard of excellence. More information can be found on the dedicated website.
