5 We re On a Joint Mission To integrate standardized sustainability elements into our commercial relationships in order to: raise awareness reduce risk continuously improve the sustainability of our supply chains deliver on our promises for the benefit of our customers, employees, shareholders, environment and industry. Slide 5

6 What is Together for Sustainability? A joint effort to create standards for sustainable supply chains. The initiative was founded in 2011 by six multinational chemical companies. The purpose of the TfS Initiative is to develop and implement a global audit program to assess and improve sustainability practices within the supply chains of the Chemical Industry. The initiative will continue to grow over time. AkzoNobel and Clariant joined TfS in The current members are: Designated members are: Slide 6

7 Together for Sustainability focuses on environmental, social and governance issues in sustainable sourcing Sustainable sourcing: Suppliers are no longer assessed purely on the basis of price, quality and on-time delivery Sustainability topics such as health, safety, labor and environmental issues are important criteria Management Price Sustainability Environment Health & Safety On-time Delivery Product Quality Labor & Human Rights Governance Slide 7

8 Together for Sustainability focuses on environmental, social and governance issues in sustainable sourcing TfS members want key sourcing markets to know that they: Care about supplier s sustainability performance Aim to identify and mitigate sustainability risks in their supply chains Engage with suppliers to focus on a process of continuous improvement Slide 8

9 The TfS Approach Consists of Two Key Processes.. Online CSR Assessments by Ecovadis On-site Audits by 3 rd Party Audit Companies Slide 9

10 3 rd Party Assessments A single online monitoring platform to assess CSR performance and measure improvement Slide 10

11 Sustainability assessments today: Multiple requests, multiple formats, multiple rating systems, multiple scopes For Buyers High costs No reliable data No internal adoption For Suppliers Audit / Questionnaire fatigue No personalized feedback No focus on improvements Slide 11

12 EcoVadis : Our single point approach to CSR assessment and monitoring. The supplier scorecard will automatically be visible to all TfS member companies. Suppliers are able to reuse it for other client's requests they receive. Dynamic Questionnaires + Data verification Watch = Reliable CSR Ratings For Suppliers Improvement areas identified Competition benchmark Administrative burden reduced Best practice learned / adopted For Buyers Standardized Approach Reliable, objective indicator Actionable scorecards Measurable supplier differentiation Slide 12

13 Ecovadis: #1 Supplier Sustainability Monitoring Platform Buyers 120 Companies 1Trillion spend Suppliers 20,000 companies 70% SME s 150 Categories 100 Countries 21 CSR Criteria Slide 13

14 3 rd Party On-site Audits Pre-approved global auditors administer a single, standardized sustainability audit on-site. Slide 14

15 3 rd Party On-site Audits An audit for one is an audit for all Benefits: Sharing of results with multiple customers on one platform provides efficiency and effectiveness Avoid double audits and assessments Assessment / audit quality & consistency is assured High quality, best practice through selected and qualified partners Engage with customers on sustainability requirements and challenges Build up long-term business relationships with customers Build internal and external capability & awareness Slide 15

16 TfS Supplier Audits At a more detailed level, the TfS audits are based on 32 audit criteria. Management Management in Charge Policy & Continuous Improvement Management Training Business Partners Environment Environmental Compliance Waste Emissions to Air and Climate Change Environment Water and Wastewater Energy Land Use and Biodiversity Soil and Groundwater Health & Safety Labor & Human Rights Governance Product Safety Transportation Safety Process Safety and Storage Occupational Health and Safety Child labor Forced and Compulsory Labor Working Hours Minimum Wages Business Integrity Privacy and Intellectual Property Risk Area: Conflict Minerals Health and Safety Criteria Labor & Human Rights Governance Emergency Preparedness Medical Care Security Freedom of Association Discrimination Special Work Contracts Facilities & Dormitories Risk Area: Animal Care Fair Competition Disciplinary and Complaint Procedures Slide 16

17 Progress to Date Is the industry participating? Slide 17

18 Progress to Date Assessments 1785 suppliers have been scored and data has been shared via Ecovadis Audits 180 suppliers have been audited 246 audit reports have been shared via Ecovadis (including follow up audits) 191 new audits have been planned, in scheduling phase Over 2000 assessments and audits have generated meaningful improvement programs and benchmarking data Slide 18

19 Benefits What are suppliers and customers saying? Slide 19

20 Quotes from assessed / audited TfS suppliers Our people at our factory in France were very pleased that one of our largest customers is showing interest in our sustainability journey. Our employees felt proud to show the job they are doing. This was very rewarding and motivational for the plant team. Thank you for having given us this opportunity. We were surprised at the results. It was kind of tough to see the gaps that were identified in our current processes. This program is helping us to know what to focus on to make us a better, long term and sustainable supplier to multiple global companies at one time! We were glad that we had the opportunity to demonstrate to the TfS membership our efforts done in the past on sustainability and our commitment to do so in the future. We are convinced that this will make a difference in the future and make us a better company. The meeting was an eye opener for me. The question for me now after this experience will always be: are our activities, products and services fully supporting you in the most sustainable way? Slide 20

21 Quotes from assessed / audited TfS suppliers The Ecovadis and TfS audit process defines priorities and insures we are working on the right things. It was very good to have our customer s team along side for the audit. It is always better to have the customer involved, rather than doing the audit only with a third party. This should be also done for future audits, in my opinion. I do not want to simply tick off the box that we have done the audit. What do we now need to do together to make this meaningful? What do we need to concentrate on?... There were many points discussed that we need to tackle together and to use to our mutual benefit. I m happy to join the team and to get it done. This process assists our company in understanding what s important and aligning our resources against common goals. Slide 21

22 Why sustainability AkzoNobel is taking sustainability very seriously. Also because our customers are asking it; how things are being made, what natural resources are being used and how products are being disposed off. We have to look how we develop, how we innovate and how we work in the supply chain. We need to change our behavior. And we have to change it NOW. Ton Büchner, CEO AkzoNobel Global Sustainability Day

23 All suppliers impact the long term success and sustainability of our industry. This is a journey. Join us! Slide 23
