Supplier relations

The urgency of a zero-carbon transition is getting more pressing each day.


It is necessary to create, everywhere we can, accelerators for change.


The ambition of ENGIE to become Leader of the zero-carbon transition “as a service” is founded on an ambitious social and environmental commitment.


This commitment implies in the first place that our Group makes every effort to comply at all times with the rules and principles of action outlined in its Ethics Charter. Everyone who acts on behalf of the Group, must be fully aware of such requirements, and must apply these business practices in their professional activities.


The Group Procurement Policy outlines ENGIE’s requirements and commitments in its supplier relations with the objective to offer competitive and sustainable solutions and provide a safe working environment while complying with principles of ethical business conduct.


Our 7 principles we follow in our relationships are:


  1. Comply with laws, regulations, external standards, Group commitments and internal procedures
  2. Treat suppliers fairly, transparently and impartially
  3. Ensure that mutual commitments are respected
  4. Protect the confidentiality of all information exchanged
  5. Foster awareness of and meet the Group’s commitments with regard to ethical standards, sustainable development and social responsibility
  6. Avoid any conflict of interests that may undermine objective and independent decision making
  7. Report any situation that does not comply with these rules
