Sustainability and Supply Chain
Equans has established its IMPACT Charter, following on from the Responsible Business Charter used by the business since 2018. The Charter centres on seven key commitments, underlining the company’s commitment to operate to the highest economic, social and environmental standards.
The Charter provides the framework for our commitments around responsible supply chain management. It ensures transparency and accountability on critical issues including, speed of supplier payments, supply chain environmental performance, supply chain diversity and social value. The ISO 20400 drives the focus for our procurement strategy and how we engage with our supply chain.
Why a Partner?
Equans believes the school offers opportunity for collaboration and sharing of sustainable practice amongst its members. The school offers a wide range of training opportunities internally as well as for our supply chain (modern slavery, no life at risk, carbon, circular economy). The supply chain school provides a focus upon the key issues that companies and their supply chains need to prioritise.
“As a responsible business, procuring goods and services in a sustainable and ethical way is at the heart of our procurement strategy. Sustainability at Equans is driven through close collaboration with our supply chain, and through developing a deep understanding of the true capabilities and capacity of their businesses and objectives. Working in this way, we can drive sustainable solutions in to our bids and projects and deliver a smarter and more compelling solutions for our clients.
