Supplier Relationship and Risk Management is the discipline we adopt in managing interactions with third party organizations that supply goods or services to Air Liquide. It is designed to make the most of these interactions by maximizing value, minimizing risks, and optimizing Air Liquide’s resources deployment.
SR2M starts with a supplier’s onboarding and continues throughout the lifecycle. It requires close cooperation between the Procurement and Operations/Business teams who play a strong role in those activities
Relationship and performance management
Relationship and performance management promotes value creation with Air Liquide partners. There are 4 segments of suppliers based on the suppliers’ impact on Air Liquide activities and their value creation potential: Strategic, Leverage, Potential and Transactional. Depending on the segment, Procurement and Operations/Business teams should organize regular business reviews (Executive and/or Operational), to evaluate and improve performance through KPI monitoring and joint action plan development
Supplier’s risks should be assessed and mitigated before entering a business relationship and then monitored on a regular basis. On top of Trade Compliance and Corruption risks (which are deal breakers), 7 types of risks have been defined [to be hyperlinked]. Critical Suppliers should be identified, evaluated, monitored and qualified through detailed evaluations and/or on-site audits and/or dedicated (joint) mitigation action plans.
Code of Conduct
The Air Liquide Group adheres to the highest standards in conducting business and is committed to respecting human and labor rights and protecting the environment.
We’re a signatory of:
- The UN Global Compact: The UN Global Compact’s 10 founding principles cover human rights, international labor standards, the environment and corruption.
- The Responsible Care Charter: This initiative is run by the International Council of Chemical Associations, whose signatories give their commitment to improve the global chemical industry performance in terms of health, safety and environmental protection
In accordance with these commitments we expect each of our suppliers, their parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliate entities, employees, temporary or not, and our suppliers’ own suppliers and subcontractors, to comply with the principles described in our “Supplier’s Code of Conduct”.
LET’S COMMIT TO A SUSTAINABLE WORLD TOGETHER!
In the frame of the COP21 Agreement, Air Liquide is striving to contribute to a more sustainable world, where the environment is respected and natural resources are preserved. That is why we expect our suppliers to contribute as well to these efforts and commitments by complying with applicable environmental protection regulations and by identifying their societal and environmental risks.
