Promoting sustainable business models through responsible purchasing practices

For Brembo, supply chain management is a priority and is essential to ensuring responsible supplies, with a focus on environmental protection and the rights of workers and local communities. For this reason, over the years, the Group has established a structured supplier management process that seeks to promote the development of stable relations with its partners, as well as ensuring continuous innovation and improved quality and sustainability matters throughout the supply chain.

This process is structured into three main phases:

  1. Clear communication of the standards that Brembo expects from its business partners in terms of product and service quality, respect for human rights and employee protection and, more generally, attention to ESG issues.
  2. Assessment of suppliers’ capacity to meet ESG-related technical specifications and requirements both during the qualification phase and during the business relationship and monitoring of the risk relating to supply.
  3. Supporting suppliers in their continuous improvement activities of their performances and in the strengthening of the ability to innovate.

Local supplies, i.e., supply from supplier located in the same countries where the Group operates

Brembo pursues an international development strategy with a central focus on the local area and a commitment to create stable relations with local communities. This is proved by the high percentage of purchases received from local suppliers in the same country where the Group operates, equal to 88% of purchases*.

New supplier selection and assessment

Brembo has defined a structured process for the assessment and approval of new suppliers.

  • The first phase of the process involves inviting suppliers to register with Brembo’s Supplier Portal and asking them to complete a pre-assessment questionnaire (the questionnaire is also available online on the website https://www.brembo. com/en/company/suppliers/criteria-for-selection). The questionnaire also includes a CSR section, intended to assess aspects relating to safeguard workers’ rights, counter corruption and minimise the risks for the environment. During 2021, 33% of the new suppliers activated were evaluated on ESG issues by completing the pre-assessment questionnaire.
    This first analysis phase enables Brembo not to establish commercial relationships with suppliers who do not comply with the minimum requirements and allows it to identify in advance any critical issues regarding new potential suppliers and to implement corrective actions. The questionnaires are analysed by the Purchasing, Administration & Finance, Quality & Corporate Social Responsibility GCFs with the aim of assessing the operating, financial and sustainability risk profiles.
  • Once the pre-assessment phase is concluded positively, all potential suppliers of direct materials receive onsite visits from the Quality GCF to check that the quality and process requirements are met effectively.

  • Once the pre-assessment and approval process has been completed, the supplier becomes part of the supplier base to which Brembo can award orders. The assignment of a specific supply takes place by benchmarking the various offers received on the basis of the following assessment criteria:
    A. Compliance with technical specifications
    B. Technological and innovation capabilities
    C. Quality and service
    D. Economic competitiveness
