ERCO conducts its business with honesty and integrity, treats all people with dignity and respect, and supports the communities around its operations. We strive to meet these same standards in our relationships with our suppliers, who are critical to the success of our business.
ERCO is a founding member of the voluntary Responsible Care® initiative of the chemical industry. It requires member companies to work together to look for ways to continually improve their performance in all aspects of health, safety, and environmental protection. ERCO’s Quality Management System is registered to the ISO 9001 Standards.
ERCO suppliers must also demonstrate a commitment to high ethical standards, safe and healthy working environments, protection of human rights, preservation of the environment, and regulatory compliance. Further, ERCO’s Supplier Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for safe, responsible and ethical management, including caring for workers, our communities and the environment. We ask all suppliers to live by this code.
To gain visibility to our supply base, ERCO requires suppliers to complete qualification forms containing information about supplier activities, processes and polices. ERCO uses this information to understand supply risks and opportunities for improvement, in support of our own ISO and Responsible Care programs.
