Case Description

In a natural extension of its commitment, VINCI’s new framework contract with suppliers has included a Global Compact compliance clause since February 2004.

The clause lists the 10 principles.
In addition, with a view to promoting the exchange of best practices between VINCI and its suppliers, the Purchasing Coordination has included a further commitment, asking suppliers to inform VINCI of:
- any request or action which, arising from the signed contract, is not consistent or compliant with the 10 principles;
- any initiative they take to promote or uphold the 10 principles as part of their business activity;
- any decision to participate in the GC.Since February 2004, VINCI’s frameworks contracts with suppliers include this clause.
