We grow in partnership with our suppliers, driven by the same goal – the highest levels of quality

Hyundai knows that growing in partnership with its suppliers leads to better quality for its customers. We are therefore committed to transparent and fair trade with our suppliers. We have in place rigorous fair trade compliance programs and risk assessments to increase the transparency of our supply process, which are building the foundations for joint growth. Hyundai’s suppliers grow alongside us, and we offer a wide range of programs enabling them to develop a global level of competitiveness and to achieve continued growth. In partnership with our suppliers, we build an ecosystem for joint growth that ensures both Hyundai and our suppliers to offer customers the highest standards in quality.

Win-win Growth Strategy for Suppliers

Hyundai’s strategy for joint growth with its suppliers is to cultivate their global competitiveness, reinforce the basis for sustainable growth, and establish a culture of joint growth. In cultivating global competitiveness of our suppliers, we plan to foster quality competitiveness, develop R&D capability, and enhance productivity. To reinforce the basis for sustainable growth, Hyundai is helping suppliers in strengthening foundation for sustainable management, building infrastructure for growth, and expanding global sales channels. In order to establish a culture of joint growth, Hyundai will strengthen the collaborative network between suppliers and the company, expand its support for tier 2 and tier 3 suppliers, and create a culture of joint growth. These efforts will build a virtuous cycle of win-win growth for Hyundai and its suppliers based on a strong partnership.

Establishing a sustainable supply chain

Hyundai instituted policies and procedures to ensure the sustainability of our supply chain, guarantee stable sources of supply, and respond to risks caused by problems with suppliers. We work with many suppliers in our business operations, and operate a transparent and competitive value chain. We strive to minimize risks within the supply chain through a comprehensive analysis of both economic risks and non-economic factors such as quality, delivery, technology, safety, eco-friendliness, and win-win cooperation.
