Sustainable and socially inclusive purchasing

bioMérieux is committed to building relationships with suppliers based on a responsible approach to purchasing, which is key to our mutual success.

We wish to engage our suppliers in a continuous improvement approach and involve them in our sustainable growth strategy based on environmental protection, ethics, social progress and fundamental human rights.

Our commitments to our suppliers and what we expect of them are outlined in the Charter for Responsible Purchasing between bioMérieux and its suppliers. In France, bioMérieux was among the first companies to sign the Charter for Responsible Supplier Relations initiated by the French government’s Business-to-Business Mediation Department and the French Purchasing Association (le Conseil national des achats, CDAF). The signatories of this charter demonstrate their commitment to apply best purchasing practices and to uphold their responsibilities in a relationship of mutual trust with suppliers, based on full knowledge of and respect for their respective rights and duties.

The Company is also one of the founding members of Pas@Pas. This association brings together large companies with a strong commitment to solidarity purchasing with partners representing disability-friendly and socially inclusive companies.
