The relations held by the Parent Company with its suppliers were inspired by principles of transparency and equality during 2014 as well. In order to guarantee this, the monitoring of the e-sourcing Portal and the constant upgrade of its functions is of primary importance. The Portal offers an online bidding system: those who apply are required to register online, where, if invited to take part in a tender, suppliers can follow all the stages of the process in a transparent manner.
Intesa Sanpaolo is aware that the quality of supplier relations and the procurement policies adopted can also create the necessary conditions to increase the Bank's social and relational capital, optimising the promotion of an approach focusing on the protection of the environment and respect for human rights and workers, and ensuring that suppliers achieve said goal.
