Working with our Suppliers
We work in an increasingly complex global arena, where establishing a network of lasting and mutually beneficial relationships with qualified contractual partners is crucial to maintaining consistently high standards of product and service quality, which in turn ensures a competitive advantage for the group.
Our main contractual partners are service providers linked to our core business, plus a smaller number of goods suppliers and providers of support services (such as cleaning, maintenance, transport, etc.).
For us, it is a strategic goal to develop relationships both with national and local suppliers that can provide goods and/or services throughout the country and support the group to meet specific local needs, and with international and global suppliers that can help us to compete in the international market by offering products and services that create a long-term competitive advantage in terms of cost and quality.
For both local and global supply, we select and use the most reliable suppliers and those that allow us to limit the impact of our business activities on the environment along the entire supply chain. To this end, we favour suppliers that have social responsibility policies and that apply an eco-friendly approach, such as using green technologies and procedures or offsetting emissions associated with the services they provide.
We aim to work with suppliers and external parties who share our values and philosophy and who are committed to promoting respect of the global environment, the human and labor rights, safety, quality and any factors which contribute to the welfare of society.
