Building a sustainable supply chain is important to us. Regulations, procedures, sustainability ambitions, and cultures vary, sometimes even on a state-to-state level, and although we’re experienced in every element of general contracting – and usually speak the language – our turnkey projects are often bolstered by the input of others. We like to support the growth of local suppliers too.
Agilité’s responsible purchasing program seeks to build a supply chain which understands – and shares – our long-term guiding principles.
For us, sustainable procurement is about working with our partners to ensure long-term benefits to the economy, communities, and environment – to deliver best value for our customers.
On every project, we seek to appoint the optimum combination of suppliers – whose own vision aligns with our overarching commitment to socio-economic and net zero factors – particularly across design, materials, manufacture, logistics, construction, and disposal.
As part of our work to achieve a more sustainable world, Agilité has implemented certain governing standards for our suppliers – based on the UN’s Global Compact principles. This guidance is to ensure we collaborate with those who share our values regarding sustainability.
We expect that our suppliers, as a minimum, follow our own environmental values when conducting their own business – and this is the starting point for entering into and maintaining a business relationship with Agilité.
These principles are included in our supplier sustainability policy.
