Highlights on Nexans Suppliers Day 2021 - More than 250 Suppliers attended the digital eventJul 7, 2021
Developing and leveraging relationship with suppliers is an essential pillar of Nexans Purchasing strategy.
This Suppliers Day was an opportunity to share Nexans plans and ambitions. It also illustrates what the Group expects and offers in a new dynamic with Strategic Suppliers. A great moment also to gather suppliers inputs through both a survey and One-to-One sessions.
During the event, the key topics covered were :
- Nexans’ ambition : “Electrify the Future”
- Nexans’ Purchasing priorities aligned with the Group ambition
- The new deal proposed to our Strategic Suppliers
- A focus to Nexans CSR engagements and Innovation, two increasingly important cooperation drivers with Suppliers
At the occasion of the Suppliers Day, Jérôme Chiquet, VP Group Purchasing, insisted on priorities related to Nexans CSR commitments, reminding suppliers about a strict ethical, environmental and social compliance to Nexans CSR Supplier Charter principles and a strengthened common action plan toward carbon neutrality.
Reliability and resilience to crisis were also highlighted in a more and more challenging context in which risk prevention and mitigation play a key role to secure our Customers’ on-time delivery.
Finally, the message was clear to Nexans Suppliers on the expectation to further differentiate and innovate with them as an essential lever to reducing total cost and performing better than the market.
The “Voice of Suppliers” recently performed revealed a great news : their main motivation is to further engage into a long term collaboration, leveraging Nexans growth potential in sustainable activities.
“ We want to be proud of our suppliers and you need to be proud of Nexans. The journey in which you are invited is extremely important in the coming future. As Nexans supplier, you will no longer serve a generalist but a pure electrification player. We will select our key suppliers not only from a profit perspective, but also with a focus on key items such as environment, engagement and the quality of relationship that we can develop on the long-term . This is fundamental. ”
