Supply Chain Sustainability 

 2011  2012  2013  2014 2015
No of suppliers covered by an agreement on responsible business conduct in % of total suppliers (%) [1] 87 93 98 99 100
Systematic SCP risk reduction during the year based on supplier SAQ (%) [2] 88 90 89 93 94
Sustainbility inspections and audits 2 397 2 230 1 999 5 292 7924
Fatalities in the supply chain[3] 13 7 2 4 18

[1] Average total number of applicable suppliers is approximately 20,600.

[2] The Supply Chain SCP Risk indicator (SCSR) gives an indication of the SCP risk level in the supply chain, based on a global supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) conducted at the end of every year. The SCSR is reduced during the subsequent year, based on verification of concrete risk elimination at suppliers – and the target every year has been to reduce this number by 80% during the subsequent year. In strict terms, the SCSR is the percentage of suppliers that have one or more risk factors classified as HIGH, based on the results of the annual SAQ

[3] For the period up to 2014 this includes in-house contractors and employees of 1st line suppliers when working for Telenor. 2015 figures includes also 2nd and 3rd line suppliers.
