Procurement principles

ET&S Procurement buys many different goods and services. The organization procures on the basis of best total value, i.e. in terms of quality, time and cost, and adhere to compliance principles at all times. In this way, the procurement department helps to make a significant and sustainable contribution to the success of ET&S.

A high sense of responsibility towards the company is the benchmark for the procurement activities. Environmental and social aspects as well as aspects of corporate governance (ESG: Environment, Social and Governance) play a decisive role. Therefore, procurement holds their suppliers accountable for sustainable business practices.

Sustainability and transparency along the value chain are just as crucial for successful cooperation with ET&S as price or quality. These principles apply to all business units of ERGO Group.

In addition to registering on the eProcurement platform, compliance with the principles of the Global Compact and agreement to the Anti-Corruption Agreement are also necessary as a first step in order to consider you as a potential supplier.
