A stable and trustworthy
with our suppliers
To establish a stable and trusting relationship with suppliers, one that secures a minimum of operational risks, as well as to encourage transparency, objectivity and impartiality in the procurement of services and products, ILUNION has drawn up a responsible purchasing policy.
The procedure to select, certify and assess suppliers also takes other factors into account, such as economic criteria and the observance of international standards to comply with social, ethical and environmental commitments. It also considers adherence to conventions like those of ILO, the United Nations Global Compact and the holding of Social Accountability certificates such as the SA8000 standard.
From the environmental perspective, suppliers must be committed to reducing the environmental impact of their activities, while at the same time minimising their consumption of resources and controlling waste generation.
Moreover, and in keeping with the organisation's goal, there is a preference criterion for those suppliers that employ people with disabilities and that comply with the General law of the rights of people with disabilities and their social inclusion. The aforementioned criterion also applies to those companies involved in universal accessibility and design for all activities for both physical and/or online environments and that deal in accessible products and services.
