We engage suppliers in our continuous improvement and our sustainable growth strategy, founded on the protection of the environment, ethics, social progress and fundamental human rights.
Our commitments to and expectations of suppliers are outlined in our Charter for Responsible Purchasing between bioMérieux and its suppliers, which has been refreshed to focus on the commitments we hold as essential and reflect the Company's new organization.
In France, bioMérieux was among the first companies to sign the Charter for responsible supplier relations established by the French Government and the CFDA1, the association of purchasing managers in France. By adhering to this charter, signatories demonstrate their willingness to apply responsible purchasing practices and maintain trusting relationships with their suppliers, based on the mutual recognition and respect of each other’s rights and duties.
Socially inclusive purchasing
The company is also one of the founding members of the Pas@Pas association. This association gathers large companies with a strong commitment to socially inclusive purchasing with partners employing staff with disabilities and involved in promoting professional integration.* Compagnie des dirigeants et acheteurs de France
