Responsible purchasing policy

Naval Group continues to enhance its global performance and that of its suppliers in order to maintain its position of European leader in naval defence.

Naval Group, the panel of suppliers of which is made up of two thirds of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and mid-market enterprises, makes every effort to implement responsible purchasing practices.

Every year since 2014, Naval Group has been awarded the “supplier relations and responsible purchasing” label by the French business ombudsman jury.

Naval Group’s commitments to its suppliers

Naval Group is committed to developing fair and mutually beneficial long-term relations with its suppliers.
The charter of responsible supplier relations, signed by Naval Group, restates these commitments and is part of an ethical approach. It applies to all group employees working with suppliers and subcontractors and defines the principles and values to be applied concerning ethics and contractual relations.
For any questions, contact the Ethics Committee through its secure and confidential e-mail: ethics@naval-group.com

As a major contributor in the labour pools where it is established, Naval Group leaves a lasting impression on the industrial and economic fabric, and particularly on SMEs.

The group’s expectations with respect to its suppliers

Naval Group links its suppliers and subcontractors to its performance and its growth, which implies closely linking them to its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy.

Hence, Naval Group asks its suppliers and subcontractors to adhere to the Naval Group Code of Conduct for Suppliers, which sets forth the group’s expectations as regards governance, compliance, the environment, human rights and social matters.
The adherence of suppliers and subcontractors to this code of conduct is materialised by signing a “Binding agreement”.
