Extension of the Environmental Principles to Include Suppliers

The internal norm upon which the GHG inventory is based, reflected in Abengoa’s common management systems, establishes the obligation to obtain emission reports from its suppliers. The norm specifies, therefore, a connection between purchasing systems and reporting of the emissions associated with goods and services acquired for incorporating them into the inventory.

In keeping with the obligations established under the internal regulations, all Abengoa suppliers are required to sign up to the Abengoa Social Responsibility Code and report the emissions linked to their goods and services or sign an Agreement to Implement a Greenhouse Gas Emission Reporting System1.

In 2010 Abengoa continued to promote this corporate policy pertaining to company suppliers, establishing 16,700 supplier agreements to date throughout the world.
