Management commitment - The issues
Aiglon's Responsible Purchasing approach is at the heart of the Group's CSR challenges.
The Aiglon Group's Purchasing Department determines the general framework of this policy.
The Suppliers policy and the Responsible Purchasing Commitment Charter specific to the Aiglon Group state that the Group's values are respected by its suppliers and subcontractors and that environmental, social, and human rights clauses are systematically included in the contracts.
Thus, the management of the Aiglon Group has adopted a responsible purchasing policy that specifies the main environmental, social, economic and human rights issues at stake in its markets, as well as the means implemented by the Aiglon Group to meet them.
Responsibilities are defined in our procedures and the Aiglon organization chart.
Responsible purchasing and monitoring objectives
To reach its objectives, Aiglon studies and evaluates the environmental and social impacts of its supply chain; the means used are essentially the returns of questionnaires, charters and commitments of its suppliers.
These aspects are also studied during on-site audits.
These documents are periodically re-evaluated to meet our evolving goals.
This responsible purchasing policy applies to all suppliers, actors in the purchasing process and to our employees who are required to read this document: management team, executives, employees.
It is communicated to clients and is available to the public on our website www.aiglon.eu
It is broken down into a plan of action along 4 lines:
- Ensure responsible behaviour in supplier relations
- Integrate environmental and societal aspects into our purchasing process
- To improve the quality of our relationships with our suppliers in a sustainable way
- Integrate this responsible purchasing policy into existing governance mechanisms
