Supply chain transparency
Praxair Transparency Policy
Praxair strives to comply with legal requirements, meet ethical standards, and implement relevant company policies, including those directly related to suppliers and the supply chain. These policies reflect our commitment to ensure that no forced or child labor exists in our supply chain.
Praxair suppliers understand Praxair's expectations. Our global procurement department regularly discusses with suppliers expectations for their qualifications, contracting and auditing. All purchasing assistants and supervisors need to be trained on Praxair's supplier expectations and human rights policies.
Praxair Supplier Management Program
The Praxair management team communicates with top suppliers every year to enhance compliance with these policies and remind suppliers of contractual obligations with us. Praxair executives will especially reaffirm our expectation that business dealings with suppliers are based on the principles of fairness, integrity, legality, safety, environmental protection and social awareness. We will continue to evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies and, where appropriate, adopt these policies and regulations to improve our plans.
