Responsible Procurement System

«We evaluate our suppliers with respect to Corporate Social Responsibility»

Abengoa is working to implement social responsibility in all of its lines of activity and therefore fosters and promotes the principles set forth in the Global Compact, the Declaration of Human Rights, fulfillment of the indicators established by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the company’s own Code of Conduct throughout the supply chain.

In order to accomplish this objective, in 2011 Abengoa began to develop a Responsible Procurement System that incorporates sustainability criteria into the company’s assessment of its suppliers for the purpose of establishing supplier classification in terms of such aspects, while at the same time furthering responsible, transparent practices along the supply chain.

The responsible procurement system encompasses initial Abengoa purchasing system review, annual supplier assessment, onsite audits of critical providers, and supplier rating.

This system thereby establishes a collaborative model fostering long-term relationships and promoting good practices in every region where Abengoa enjoys a presence.
