Abstract

The aim of this article is to present the role of the quality and environmental management systems in the evaluation of suppliers. This evaluation is perceived by many economic entities as one of the key stages of the sourcing process in the B2B market. The conducted analysis indicates that the evaluation of suppliers allows a significant reduction of the level of risk related to the quality of both products and processes. Activities undertaken by enterprises in the evaluation of suppliers were the subject of empirical research carried out between October and November 2017, through the use of the Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI) technique. The research covered 300 producers that were suppliers for enterprises from the automotive, metal and chemical sectors. The results of the empirical research indicate that companies operating in Poland and wanting to shape partner relations with suppliers conduct their evaluation focused mainly on ensuring the quality of products, improvement of operational processes, as well as limiting the negative impact on the environment through the implementation of management system solutions.

Key words: supply chain, supplier relationship, quality and environmental management, supplier evaluation
