Sustainable Procurement Policy
EDPR is also a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact directives for a sustainable development. As such, EDPR´s suppliers shall accept to comply with the UN Global Compact’s ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
The ten principles defined by the United Nations Global Compact are available here.
We are governed by a strong sense of ethics and require that our suppliers do not have conflicts with EDPR ethical standards. EDPR’s Code of Ethics is available here.
The suppliers of EDPR shall adopt, as well, all necessary measures to ensure strict compliance with all applicable environmental regulations as well as EDPR´s Environment and Biodiversity Policies, internal norms, procedures and systems in place as regards to environmental management. EDPR´s Environment and Biodiversity Policies are available here.
Specifically, EDPR has implemented, for all its wind farms in operation, an Environmental Management System (EMS) developed and certified according to the international standard ISO 14001:2004. EMS is available here (filter by category EMS). The suppliers of EDPR shall know and understand the EMS. Also they shall be committed to make the EMS available to its employees and subcontractors, and to ensure from them the full compliance with the procedures set in EMS.
