Our various suppliers play an integral role in helping us to provide superior financial services to our clients around the world. We look for suppliers who epitomize quality, best value for money, sustainability, and innovation.
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.
Purchase Order Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions are to apply to any agreement between Credit Suisse and any third-party supplier/vendor where no other formal written agreement has been entered into. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, suppliers' General Terms and Conditions do not apply.

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.
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.

S2P Supplier Information
Credit Suisse has made changes to its Source-to-Pay (S2P) systems, processes and support arrangements as part of its strategy to simplify its global sourcing, procurement and payment processes.
This is supported by the implementation of following core components of the integrated Sourcing and Vendor Management landscape:
- Ivalua – Sourcing and Contracting solution
- CS-TPM – Third Party Risk Management solution
- DocuSign – Digital Contract Execution solution
- MyShop – Procure-to-Pay platform
Ivalua provides a comprehensive, modular, source-to-order suite. Credit Suisse intends to use this platform with vendors in a collaborative fashion and expects them to participate in the digitalization of its procurement processes.
CS/TPM provides the underlying technology support for Credit Suisse's Third Party Risk Management (TPRM) Program. TPRM plays a critical role in ensuring that Credit Suisse is able to take a risk-based approach to the management of its Third Party relationships and maximizes the business value of Third Party relationships through increased transparency and oversight. TPRM benefits also include an enhanced ability to meet the ever-changing global regulatory framework.
DocuSign is a digital contract execution (DCE) solution that enables contracts to be fully executed without ink signatures. Full signature history is available for audit purposes.
MyShop is a platform that improves efficiency and the supplier experience in the way Credit Suisse processes invoices. For any questions which are not addressed in the "See Also" section, the centralized S2P Service desk may be contacted:
