Procurement, sustainable by design

The mission of Procurement is to contribute to ENGIE’s ambition to be the world leader in the transition to zero-carbon “as a service”.

Procurement, sustainable by design!

Understanding and quantifying what really matters in the value chain is a key component of the Group’s strategy.

With an addressable spend of 20,3 billion euros in 2018*, of which 80% in Europe, ENGIE develops and maintains sustainable performance with ~110 000 active suppliers 90% being European.

Ability to catch suppliers’ best products, services and innovations is essential to act as an assembler of solutions and technologies aimed at delivering zero-carbon transition “as a service” to end customers.

Procurement function manages supplier relations within a system of governance seeking to:

  • contribute significantly to the Group’s operational performance,
  • define a model in terms of the creation of synergies in the Group,
  • be an ambassador for suppliers with respect to the Group’s commitments on Health and Safety (including subcontractor activities) and on Environmental and Social Responsibility.

Vigilance alert over fake order scam

The ENGIE Group wishes to alert its suppliers to fraudulent acts being perpetrated in its name. Requests to open a customer account in the name of ENGIE or ENGIE FRANCE-COURBEVOIE followed by fake order forms have been mass-mailed to companies. They could potentially mislead companies unfamiliar with the procurement procedures currently practiced by the Group.

ENGIE asks all current and potential suppliers to exercise the greatest vigilance. They are reminded that:

  • they should not ship any equipment in the absence of mention of a certified customer account, a recognized ENGIE address and a purchase order issued by the ENGIE system referring to the supplier code allocated to them by the procurement department,
  • no invoice will be paid without confirmation of receipt of equipment by ENGIE.
