To develop a sustainable and responsible supply chain
Sustainability is the only business case - for our company, and ultimately, for the Earth, economy and everyone. And, we are committed to improve the environmental, social and economic impact of our supply chain year-on-year.

Sustainable procurement policy
SUEZ is working for a radically new, smarter and sustainable management of resources and it is important that we make commitments and provide sustainable solutions. This policy describes how we will work with our supply chain to deliver sustainable outcomes through our procurement activity.
We will do this by:
- minimising or eliminating any negative environmental impacts linked to goods and services purchased, and promoting goods and services with positive environmental impacts where feasible.
- managing and monitoring supply chains to ensure that fair contract prices and terms are applied and that ethical human rights and employment standards are met.
- partnering and collaborating with suppliers to achieve both value for money from our contracts across the whole life of the product or service, and to promote innovation.
