An agile and resilient innovation eco-system

Supplier innovation, collaboration and flexibility enable us to respond to the challenges faced by customers and drive improvements in products, parts, materials, processes and systems. A resilient, integrated supply chain – and a shared belief that there’s always a way to make lives better – is key to bringing meaningful innovations and breakthrough solutions to market with speed and agility.

Partnerships based on transparency and accountability


We set high standards for ourselves and our suppliers. Our compliance expectations are laid out in our policies and guidelines, requiring suppliers to deliver the highest quality, act fairly and with integrity and observe the highest standards of ethics.

Supplier quality


To ensure our products are safe, reliable and effective, suppliers meet stringent quality requirements in the supply of materials, products, parts and services. The Philips Quality Manual provides support in understanding and meeting our expectations. 

Supplier sustainability


Our goal to improve people’s lives extends beyond our innovative products, systems and services to our supply chain and the way we do business.  We work together with our supply partners to ensure sustainable supply management and responsible sourcing for a positive and lasting impact. 

Supplier tools

 

From the very start, our suppliers are provided with tools and processes to enable collaboration and communication, drive performance, foster innovation and enable faster decision making.
