Our policy is to:
Assess all potential suppliers against an ethical and environmental questionnaire prior to being added to our supplier lists
Communicate and treat our suppliers/customers with fairness and courtesy as dictated by our internal values.
The global procurement team utilises commodity management methodology, sharing best practice across all site locations to draw on complementary skills and knowledge and drive the development of supplier sourcing strategies that are aligned with customer, business unit, engineering roadmaps and requirements.
Under the auspices of the Supplier Accreditation Scheme, quarterly business and scorecard reviews are conducted, driving continuous improvement. This promotes audit compliance and risk sharing and is the engine which drives the e2v procurement sourcing strategy and leads to increased leverage through spend aggregation as well as promoting increased security of supply and compliance to e2v’s legal, commercial, environmental and ethical requirements in conjunction with our Corporate Responsibility policy.
Our primary focus is to ensure that a robust supply chain is continuously in place whilst we continue to leverage strategic supplier relationships to exceed our customers’ expectations regarding the quality, reliability and availability of our products and services.
