Suppliers & Contractors
Our Purchasing Policy
The official purchasing policy of Flogas Britain defines the key principles and procedures for the acquisition of goods, services and works. It is a document that identifies the principles by which the purchasing of goods and services for Flogas should function.
We as a company recognise the importance of safety, health, environmental, social, legal and ethical impacts of all supply and procurement decisions. We believe that choosing sustainable products and suppliers is a sound business decision and that sustainable procurement is a value that is not at odds with our drive for commerciality or our value for money goals. It will in fact reduce whole life costs of purchases, protect our reputation and provide us with a sustainable supply chain.
We have a legal and ethical obligation to ensure that our procurement practices and standards place an emphasis on safety and are environmentally sound, efficient and well managed on behalf of our business, our employees and our customers. We are committed to operating to the highest legal, ethical and corporate sustainability standards.
To achieve best value for money in procuring the goods and services that meets our needs and are within legal and ethical standards.
We therefore ask that our suppliers:
- Operate safely
- Comply with all legislation
Promote fair working conditions of pay, working hours, equality, no use of child
- Work to reduce energy consumption and their impact on climate change.
- Minimise packaging on any products supplied to us.
We will work together with suppliers in pursuit of these objectives and will regularly assess compliance through a supplier survey.
To this extent we have produced an on-line questionnaire to allow us to assess key suppliers and contractors and review accordingly.
Your input is vital. Further we reserve the right to cease trading with suppliers who don't comply.
