We select suppliers and set the conditions for purchasing goods and services for Group companies. Our selection is guided by the values and criteria of legitimacy, competition, objectivity, fairness, impartiality, fair pricing, quality of goods and/or services and environmental sustainability. We carefully evaluate service guarantees and available offers.
To promote the sustainability of our supply chain, our suppliers are required to accept and apply the Group Code of Ethics and the Supplier Code of Conduct. The latter brings together all the provisions, defining the standards that suppliers must comply with in the areas of labour law and human rights, worker safety and environmental sustainability, for which specific monitoring activities are planned.
In 2022, the first self-assessment campaign was launched. Suppliers were invited to fill in a self-assessment questionnaire on the following topics: Labour, Protecting People, Environment, Safety and Health and Integrity and Transparency.
