Icelandair has put a special emphasis on working with Icelandic suppliers to promote local products and crafts as part of our promise to bring Iceland to the world. We have made it a priority to serve local products on our flights to allow our international customer base to try the best of Iceland. When selecting suppliers for our Iceland selection, we carefully monitor quality and sustainability features.
Icelandair also has more than 2,000 suppliers around the world. We are one of the largest buyers of products and services in Iceland, and have a significant footprint. During 2019, we have worked to centralise and improve our procurement function across the Group. As part of this process we have identified responsible procurement as a material issue for Icelandair Group to work with. We have initiated the work to categorise our suppliers according to sustainability risks and to design solid monitoring and follow-up measures. We have mapped our largest suppliers according to sustainability risks and used the opportunity to train our procurement team on responsibility issues.
