Our procurement goals are twofold: first, to leverage our expertise in sustainable procurement to obtain products and services at a cost that represents the best value possible for our customers, and second, to ensure that our organization’s procurement behaviors are fair, transparent, and conducted in the most ethical manner.
We leverage our expertise to provide competitive and creative solutions for our customers. Together with our employees, our customers, our partners, and — especially — our suppliers, we form a community of imaginative builders, striving every day to bring about more progress toward a sustainable future.
Our sustainable procurement policy specifies ENGIE’s requirements and commitments in our relationships with suppliers:
- In the renewable energy transition, ENGIE is looking for competitive offers on sustainable and innovative solutions.
- ENGIE is a responsible employer concerned with the health and safety of our employees, and we require the same commitment from suppliers.
- As an active member of the U.N. Global Compact, ENGIE is committed to ethical relationships in business.
- ENGIE North America has signed the Solar Energy Industries Association’s (SEIA’s) Forced Labor Prevention Pledge
ENGIE is working toward carbon neutrality for our customers, suppliers, and our organization. While we increase our internal efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, we are also focused on sustainable purchasing, evaluating our suppliers and making sure our alliances are on the right path toward a brighter future for this planet.
The ENGIE procurement team has partnered with a third-party service provider that evaluates suppliers based on information provided to them on corporate social responsibility (CSR) factors such as carbon emissions, health and safety, and human welfare. We ask our preferred and major suppliers to participate in the assessment program so we can be sure we are partnering with companies that share our goals for this planet.
Supplier diversity also plays an important role in our procurement strategy. By ensuring that our business’s procurement of goods and services centers on a diverse supplier base, our supplier diversity program enables us to better serve our customers, strengthen our inclusive and innovative culture, and promote local economic growth.
To that end, we track spend with companies that have the following ownership classifications:
- Owned by individual(s) with disabilities
- Small disadvantaged
- HUBZone small business
Suppliers can register for our supplier diversity program by completing this form. Note that you must provide your current certification via a third-party certification organization recognized by ENGIE. Please note registration does not guarantee business with any supplier.
