Responsible purchasing – a structured strategy Sustainable development considerations are an integral part of our purchasing policies and we expect subcontractors and suppliers to uphold the same values, particularly in terms of ethics, diversity and environmental protection. Subcontractors and suppliers are chosen for their technical expertise, service quality and compliance with the rules governing concealed work (based in particular on an analysis of the certificates (attestations) filed via the online platform operated by our partner, However, their sustainable development initiatives are also a factor in the selection process. Purchases are organised in four families:


● purchases of intellectual services;

● purchases of studies and/or execution services; ● purchases of goods and/or components;

● purchases classified as general and administrative expenses.

In France, our Mission Handicap team promotes outsourcing of maintenance work to “EA” and “ESAT” companies specialised in employing people with disabilities.

Information and encouragement campaigns are organised regularly among the people responsible for purchasing these services and a catalogue of identified service providers is available on the Group’s Intranet.
