Supplier relationships built on trust and mutual benefit are essential to CEMEX's success.
We will always manage our supplier relationships with honesty, respect, and integrity, offering equal opportunities for all parties concerned.
To this end, we have created channels to receive and answer all the concerns, ideas, suggestions, and complaints for our suppliers.
At CEMEX, besides Global initiatives, each country develops different programs to interact with our suppliers and is responsible for a full range of activities related to timely and effective regional and national negotiating and purchasing of goods and services.
We are pleased to present our new Sustainable Supplier Policy, a business development that includes sustainability as a key tool for assuring present and future progress. According to this, CEMEX has decided to award its most sustainable suppliers with the “Eco-operating with the environment” distinction, a title that will also allow them to have advantages in future negotiations.
The Policy provides a series of principles that assure a sustainable supply chain and the right system to evaluate and classify suppliers in four groups, according to their level of sustainable development in relation to the grade they obtained.
- Operating: Optimal suppliers that only incorporate sustainability in a very low level.
- Operating with the environment: Optimal suppliers that incorporate sustainability in their processes.
- Cooperating with the environment: Optimal suppliers that have constant practices focused on sustainability.
- Eco-operating with the environment: Considered Sustainable Suppliers, this category will include businesses that apply policies and methodologies of continuous sustainable development in its different departments; at the same time they should be doing follow-up and searching for constant improvement in every aspect of the business.
In CEMEX we are always seeking for ways to improve our processes through tools and technology. The suppliers program “Integrate your ideas” it’s implemented in CEMEX countries as a channel to capture this innovation from our suppliers.
