"The Code of Conduct for Responsible Purchasing sets out the commitments expected of our Suppliers in terms of environmental, social, business ethics and supply chain management.
This approach, which began in 2013, is a long-term one and now includes compliance with the Code as a selection criterion, along with the notions of cost, quality, service, innovation, and risk management.
The Group Purchasing Department wishes to base its Responsible Purchasing on the principles of ethics, professionalism, transparency, and mutual trust.
This Code is the reference framework. It is signed by each supplier when it joins the Group panel."
Hervé Richonnier - Group Purchasing Director
