Our ambition: Engaging with suppliers for a sustainable Business
Intrinsically procurement function, suppliers and subcontractors are essential stakeholders in the Group value chain.
The ENGIE Group Procurement Department has set the goal of implementing by 2020 CSR initiative covering procurement chain management in all entities controlled by the Group. This initiative is broken down into three key commitments:
- paying on-time our suppliers and subcontractors
- supporting the subcontractor Health & Safety policy
- integrating a continuous improvement process for CSR into operational processes, and providing the corresponding training to key contributors
Going forward: a new partnership with a CSR specialist to monitor ENGIE’s suppliers panel
In accordance with the provisions of the Sapin II law and the law relating to the duty of vigilance of parent companies ENGIE has drawn up a Vigilance Plan to prevent risks to its own activities and those of its subsidiaries, subcontractors and suppliers, in France and abroad.
To implement this Vigilance Plan, ENGIE has partnered with EcoVadis to evaluate its Preferred Suppliers in order to monitor and measure the social and environmental performance of its supply chain.
By choosing Ecovadis, ENGIE uses its CSR expertise, online tools which will save time and resources for suppliers on CSR assessments and reporting thanks to:
- Confidential and efficient CSR questionnaire and expert analysis
- A CSR Scorecard which can be shared with their other clients as well
- Tools for benchmarking and improving CSR practices
ENGIE sets targets for preferential & major suppliers, in particular on the onboarding rate and their assessment above a score of 45/100.
EcoVadis has developed a methodology for assessing company CSR engagement against 21 CSR criteria
Suppliers are assessed on a scale numerically represented as scales from 0-100 (0-24=Insufficient,25-44 = Partial, 45-64=Moderate,
