Purchasing at Aubert & Duval is built around three key objectives: performance, risk management and the creation of sustainable value for all parties. These three pillars are at the heart of the long-term relationship between the Group’s Purchasing teams and suppliers.
To contribute to the Group’s financial performance, Purchasing is constantly seeking new solutions to reduce costs. At the same time, special attention is paid to supporting supplier performance.
2. RISK MANAGEMENT
The Group’s Purchasing policy is designed not only to ensure full control of the Group’s CSR risks, but also to challenge those linked to the performance of suppliers. This effort includes the anticipation of financial and IT risks, but also the management of non-compliance risk: duty of care and obligation of vigilance of companies, Sapin II law, anti-corruption fight, RGPD, etc.
3. CREATING SUSTAINABLE VALUE FOR ALL
Through its Purchasing policy, the Group aims to create sustainable value for all its stakeholders. To this end, the teams strive to source innovations from suppliers and contribute to the Group’s digitalization.
Contributing to the creation of value and the sustainable economic performance of the Group is at the heart of the Purchasing function’s mission. This is why all our suppliers are encouraged to work with Aubert & Duval to improve their practices.
