Collaborating with our Supply Chain //

Case Study Endeavour Aids Rescue effort follwing earth quake

One of our priorities for 2017 was to integrate sustainability principles in our procurement practices. Our central team responsible for overseeing procurement and contracts held a workshop to identify our most significant suppliers and the potential economic, social and environmental risks in our procurement processes.

Following the workshop, the team enhanced Endeavour’s Procurement Manual of policies and procedures for working with suppliers and contractors. The manual now includes a process to evaluate a vendor’s compliance with our Code of Business Conduct and our standards for quality, service, safety, environmental responsibility and labour.

We conducted a pilot visit at the Guadalajara facilities of local supplier Sandvik, which supplies technical equipment. The evaluation was very satisfactory both for Endeavour and Sandvik, and it helped to reveal further areas of collaboration.
