Responsible Supply Chain
By representing leading global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and brands Barloworld participates in supply chains that conform to norms and regulations and which aspire to the highest standards. This is in line with our value-based management framework.
Relationships throughout our supply chain are guided by our governance framework that includes our Code of Ethics, Worldwide Code of Conduct, related policies and commitment to legal compliance. Interactions are also informed by the group’s strategic framework, including our commitment to being a leader in sustainable development and the identification of competitive advantage though offering customer solutions that assist customers in achieving their sustainable development objectives, facilitate a transition to low carbon economies and expand into related opportunities.
Aside from the OEMs, Barloworld also sources goods and services from a range of other service providers. This is of particular importance in South Africa where a key socio-economic driver is the integration of previously disadvantaged people into the economy. Through our South African orientated Enterprise Development initiatives, we support small to medium size suppliers, contractors and enterprises within it supply chain. In addition, our preferential procurement programme, supports previously disadvantaged groups in South Africa.
Ongoing engagement with all suppliers and customers ensures awareness of expected standards and corresponding conduct. The group will disengage from elements of its supply chain that do not conform.
Relationships are based on mutual respect, trust and benefit.
