Value for Sustainable Suppliers

Bufab has as vision to become a Sustainable Leader in its industry.

We offer value to customers but also to our suppliers in the form of training, guides, and benefits of Sustainability. This helps Bufab and suppliers build commitment, exchange knowledge and find sustainable business opportunities.


At Bufab we are committed to promoting sustainable practices throughout our supply chain based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles.

Moving forward we believe that a set of requirements can further clarify our needs. As one of our valued suppliers, we believe that your expertise, involvement, and commitment would be invaluable in finding more sustainable solutions.

Sustainable Supplier Engagement Program (SSEP)

These steps replicate what Bufab has done internally, and we share it with our suppliers to follow the same. Current focus of SSEP is GHG emissions according to SBTI, GHG Protocol and SDGs. Engagement program will add more elements for learning as needed e.g., supply chain due diligence.

Set Baseline 

The aim is to set a baseline (this includes sharing among participants in the program, guidelines, checklist templates, best practices and training).

Set baseline


Set Targets

Once a baseline is set then targets in place. For GHG to reduce 5,5% CO2eq emissions every year until 2031. 

Set target


To reach the targets, actions will be implemented according to different categories.




Scope 1, 2 and 3 targets

In our effort to address current environmental challenges, in 2021 we committed to the Science-based target initiative (SBTi) to account and reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.

Our Scope 1 and 2 targets are to reduce our emissions to 0% by 2030.

Our Scope 3 target is to reduce our emissions by 55% by 2031.
