We are ‘long term’ people. Establishing strong partnerships with our supply chain is an important element of our success. We foster personal relationships, using a mix of national and local suppliers to ensure that we are delivering best value, locally focused services that support our national presence and scope, whilst also supporting local communities and economies.
We use innovative digital systems to manage performance throughout our extensive supply chain, whilst regular expert reviews ensure we continue to work with the best-performing companies. We welcome the innovation that our external partnerships support us to deliver, and actively foster partnership working through tailored payment and contractual terms and arrangements.
Our people and our partners also support local communities through volunteering and fund-raising activities as well as donations from the company. We deal with the public every day.
Our people and our supply chain are ambassadors of our clients and Eurovia as we present a single identity to the public. So we must always act in a professional and courteous manner.
We keep local communities informed of our works, manage them so as to minimise disruption, and we are responsible neighbours.
We support our supply chains' efforts to achieve excellence by collaborative working shared training and improvement workshops. We encourage constructive feedback through our 360 degree review process Q21.
Where a step change in quality or other aspects of performance is required, our Category Managers develop a structured performance improvement plan – linked to Prince2 project management methodology and objectives – and we work with supply chain members to achieve them.
We expect our supply chain to use responsibly sourced materials, products and equipment, and to work with us to improve our performance year on year and to collect the carbon data necessary to monitor this.
Eurovia supports the United Nations Global Compact and Modern Slavery Act and we expect our supply chain to accepted these principles respecting human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
Our approach to sustainable supply chain management and ethical trading is clear:
