In line with the Group’s Purchasing Policy, Urbaser has defined the internal policies necessary to manage its suppliers efficiently and responsibly throughout the entire selection and evaluation process. Likewise, a supplier “Pre-Portal” has been implemented to cover the Supplier Management Policy.
In 2018, Urbaser worked with a total of 23,021 suppliers, for a total purchasing volume of 823,713,815 Euro. Of these purchases, 77% made were local.
Where possible, Urbaser’s previously approved suppliers are chosen when purchasing products and materials that may affect the quality of the service provided, environmental conduct, or workplace safety.
