Nexans purchasing’s and suppliers commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility
Nexans Purchasing’s commitment to CSR
Nexans takes into account several criteria to award business to suppliers, the supplier CSR performance being one of the criteria.
Supplier’s CSR performance is notably based on the supplier’s CSR scorecard (certificate), issued by an independent CSR expert, internationally recognized (such as EcoVadis) as well as CSR audits on site, if any.
Nexans suppliers are encouraged to get their CSR performance assessed, certified by a CSR scorecard, and up-dated regularly.
Nexans reserves the status of preferred supplier to suppliers with a good CSR performance (among other strengths) and supports suppliers who improve their CSR performances in a continuous and sustainable way.
Nexans reserves the right to delist a supplier who would not respect the CSR principles.
Nexans Suppliers’ commitment to CSR
Nexans suppliers shall commit to the CSR principles described below, for all their activities and sites, and ensure that their own suppliers adhere to similar principles.
Nexans suppliers shall implement a continuous improvement CSR action plan. Areas for improvement are also highlighted in the supplier CSR scorecard. Nexans will be glad to support suppliers to identify actions and share the best practices.
Today, 70% of the world’s electricity comes from fossil fuels. As the planet faces extreme ramifications of climate change, Nexans is leading the charge in the decarbonization of electricity.
As part of the company's Carbon ambitions, Nexans actively engages its suppliers throughout the value chain to meet its targets.
This means working alongside suppliers to find innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions and reduce wastage of raw materials across the entire supply chain — from the extraction of copper and aluminum, production of raw materials, through the shipment up to the disposal of used products.
In September 2022, Nexans Purchasing Team has been gold awarded by the CNA ("Conseil National des Achats") for our Supplier Relationship Management.
Nexans ties up with a strong network of partners to perform based on a unique E3 model “Economic, Environment, Engagement”. Being part of Nexans' ecosystem, they strongly contribute to securing our Supply Chain as well as developing a more differentiated, total cost of ownership (TCO) competitive and sustainable offering.
