What is the S-Rating?
The main points at a glance:
We use the S-Rating to verify your performance in the areas of sustainability, the environment, and social responsibility. We will consider working together with you only if the result of the S-Rating is positive. The basis for issuing the S-Rating is provided by the self-assessment questionnaire, or SAQ. The assessment is based on your answers. An on-site check can additionally be necessary in some cases.
Your result in the S-Rating also determines whether you are eligible to be awarded contracts in the future as a business partner. “S-Rating” stands for “Sustainability-Rating.” i.e. the assessment of our business partners from sustainability aspects. As a company with operations worldwide, we at Audi attach great importance to environmentally friendly production processes and fair working conditions. With the S-Rating, we are taking the first step toward more sustainability throughout the entire supply chain. It is only when all parties cooperate as equals that we are also able to operate sustainably over the long term. We will help you in this process.
The S-Rating is mandatory for all relevant companies that would like to enter into a business relationship with us. The S-Rating becomes mandatory for companies that have more than ten employees at the location.
