Supply and distribution

As a stakeholder in a 360° ecosystem, bioMérieux draws on a productive and collaborative relationship with its suppliers and distribution service providers so as to improve its HSE results.

bioMérieux collaborates with its network of suppliers and its logistics partners to improve the Company’s Health, Safety and Environment performance (HSE). 

Our HSE standards will gradually apply to our partners in order to support the implementation of a formalized HSE policy among our logistics service providers and our suppliers.

We continue to pursue initiatives in place since 2013 to optimize our carbon footprint. In 2016, we began taking new emissions categories into account: these include direct and indirect emissions as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, to which we have added emissions related to business travel, the home-to-work commute, and the transportation of goods between bioMérieux sites and our customers’ sites.
