At Novartis, our purpose is to reimagine medicine to improve and extend people's lives.
We, the Novartis procurement team, are committed to delivering to this purpose by consistently creating business impact through productivity, leveraging innovation at scale, and spearheading Novartis environmental sustainability ambitions.
Our team of skilled procurement professionals across the globe collaborates in a “one team” spirit to identify the needs of Novartis and find the best ways to meet those needs by working closely with our business teams and building relationships with you based on trust, mutual benefits, and innovation while ensuring compliance to the highest values of business and ethical standards.
We see our suppliers as key enablers of our purpose, walking together along the value chain. Our Third-Party Code clearly defines the standards and requirements we expect from you and adherence to the same is one of the key criteria used in supplier selection and evaluation process.
We are working closely with you focusing on those with the largest contribution to our carbon footprint in execution of the expectations we have laid in the Novartis Environmental Sustainability Criteria for Suppliers. This will enable us together to turn our sustainability commitments into action.
In addition, we expect our suppliers to suggest, recommend and bring innovative solutions to address Novartis needs through open dialogues and engagement driving mutual performance efficiencies and improving productivity.
