La sostenibilidad en la cadena de suministro

Abengoa conveys its commitment to sustainability to the supply chain by means of the following initiatives, which are included under the company’s Common Management Systems.

  • Supplier emission reporting for the greenhouse gas (GHG) management system
    As a product of its engagement in sustainable development, and since the implementation in 2008 of the Greenhouse Gas Inventory, the company has been requiring all of its suppliers to report the emissions associated with the products and services acquired by Abengoa.
    All of the information pertaining to supplier emissions computation is included in the corporate Integrated Sustainability Management System (ISMS) application, where a module featuring direct supplier access is being prepared to facilitate the process of reporting their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and managing this information.
  • Signing the Abengoa CSR Code
    Since 2008, Abengoa has been requiring its suppliers to sign up to the Social Responsibility Code (SRC) for suppliers and subcontractors. This code contains eleven clauses based on the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and modeled after the international SA 8000 Standard.
    It is mandatory for the supplier to undertake a commitment with the company for all business to abide by the principles governing the company supplier code.
    In 2012, suppliers signed 2,146 agreements with Abengoa companies, and since the measure was introduced in 2008 a total of 16,362 agreements have been signed.

  • Labor-Related Social Responsibility (LSR) Policy
    Abengoa promotes the principles of the Global Compact and the SA 8000 Standard among its partners, suppliers and contractors.
  • Training
    Aware of the difficulties suppliers may have in computing their emissions, the company partners with providers in their reporting efforts, providing guidance and holding training sessions that help suppliers adapt to the new requirements introduced into the company’s procurement requirements.
    The company also provides suppliers with training in environmental affairs, including procedures and action to be taken in the event of spills or discharges, steps to follow in the event of an environmental emergency, and waste management and storage, in addition to training in occupational risk prevention. In this regard, in the range of solar complexes that are currently operating, training was provided to 362 suppliers.
  • Development and implementation of the Labor Management System: the Labor Management System establishing procedures for assessment and selection of suppliers and subcontractors based on social responsibility criteria, obtaining their written commitment to fulfilling the established requirements and developing control mechanisms so as to verify compliance.
