About the SAQ
The Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) on Sustainability is the basis for the S-Rating. It was developed by the industry initiative Drive Sustainability and covers questions in the areas of human rights and working conditions, environment, business ethics, supplier management as well as the responsible sourcing of raw materials. The SAQ is a document-based assessment, where evidences for all questions are required. It is provided on the external platform supplierassurance.com by the service provider NQC Ltd. By using a common platform, suppliers can complete the SAQ once and voluntarily share their responses with different OEMs. By doing this, we aim to reduce the workload for suppliers who do not need to complete several different sustainability questionnaires from different OEMs.
