A vision built around five main objectives
Procurement teams are responsible for meeting objectives in five
main areas:
cost reduction:
value analysis and managing the supply chain
and logistics – the right product at the right price;
supplier partnerships – the right product at the
right time;
effectively managing the process – a safe, reliable product;
sustainable development:
preparing a balanced future – products
that comply with our social responsibility and environmental
regulatory compliance:
compliance with laws and regulations
– managed suppliers and measured, managed risks.
A dedicated sustainable procurement unit
The Sustainable Procurement unit comprises two employees at
corporate level whoworkwith the country Procurement Departments.
Its main responsibilities are:
monitoring supplier CSR performance,
by leading supplier CSR
assessments and deploying corrective action plans;
managing reporting and training,
including collecting and
consolidating country data; teaching buyers how the collaborative
supplier CSR assessment platform works; and sending them a
self-training toolkit on how to use the platform;
monitoring the regulatory environment,
shaped by the growing
number of laws and regulations designed to reduce theenvironmental
impact of products at every stage in their life cycle.The Corporate
Sustainable Procurement unit is responsible for monitoring the
French and European Union regulatory environments and keeping
buyers informed about any changes. Special attention is paid to
compliance with the REACH Regulation governing chemicals,
for which 74% of suppliers had submitted a signed Declaration
of Compliance in 2014.
Responsible procurement practices
Procurement plays an important role in implementing Accor’s
sustainable development strategy. The Group’s buyers ensure
that the solutions they approve – in close cooperation with the
brands they work for – are in line with our social responsibility and
environmental objectives.
Sustainable procurement solutions are sourced at two levels:
each of the 98 purchasing categories were analyzed from two
viewpoints: i) their inherent environmental, social and societal
risks and ii) the Group’s exposure, based on guest visibility of
the product or service, purchasing volumes and type of supplier
market. Suppliers in these 98 categories are requested to sign
the Procurement Charter 21;
this dual analysis helped to identify 23 priority categories
high sustainable development impact, whose suppliers receive
special attention in the form of CSR performance assessments
and audits.
