Así gestionamos nuestra cadena de aprovisionamiento

The different suppliers and contractors supporting the operation undergo rigorous evaluation and selection processes to ensure the quality of purchasing and contracting goods and services, competitive pricing, on-time delivery, and appropriate after-sales service.

Having a supply chain that ensures the long-term operation of the Company is a key element for the sustainability of the operation of Drummond Ltd. For this reason, the different suppliers and contractors that support the operation undergo strict evaluation and selection processes.

To achieve this, Drummond Ltd. has four guidelines to ensure the right choice of suppliers and contractors:
  • In order to appropriately manage the issues associated with suppliers and contractors, the Company has established controls in the various selection criteria, always with the objective of minimizing the negative impacts that may materialize due to inadequate management of a supplier or contractor; in addition, conflicts of interest may arise in the region with local suppliers and contractors, a situation to which Drummond Ltd. is very attentive, and for which it socializes its strict Code of Ethics both internally and externally: Translated with (free version)

Risk prevention and mitigation

Drummond Ltd.’s approach to risk prevention and mitigation in suppliers and contractor management aims to establish a solid supply chain; thus, the organization carries out internal audits in pursuit of this objective, which may include environmental, social and governance criteria selected in relation to the level of criticality and the invoice value of the supply and/or service rendered.
