Supply Chain

We contract with suppliers who foster and promote sustainability criteria, who boost the Sustainable Development Goals and who hold some kind of ESG certification.

 

All suppliers, regardless of their type, are required to accept, abide by and comply with the Prosegur Code of Ethics and Conduct from the date of signing their contract.

The selection of our suppliers must be independent, objective and transparent, aspects which must be reconciled with our interest in obtaining the best possible commercial conditions.

Principles for our suppliers and associates

Abiding by the laws applicable in all jurisdictions where Prosegur operates.

Operating as a socially responsible employer with the undertaking to pay its employees a decent salary that is never less than the minimum wage, respecting the prevention of child labour and forced labour, respecting non-discrimination and equal opportunity, and respecting the freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining and the elimination of excessive working hours.

Offering a safe working environment that complies with all the standards on occupational health and safety.

Using sustainable practices that are environmentally friendly. In particular, the use of renewable energies, actions intended for reducing emissions and polluting agents which will prevent climate change, respect for biodiversity, sustainable use of natural resources and reduction of waste.

Prosegur performs indicator risk analysis on business, financial and sustainability indicators, where all company risks are analyzed, including the risks associated with critical suppliers, paying special attention to suppliers with high risk.

 

Furthermore, with the aim of enhancing the requirement to our suppliers regarding sustainability, Prosegur reserves the right to review their environmental, employment and corporate governance policies, as well as the possibility of auditing its suppliers.

 

Prosegur has an internal procedure of action that determines the steps to be taken if there is conflict of interest or possible fraud.

We prioritise collaboration with local suppliers, something which is fundamental in creating value in the country in which we operate. We work with over 26,000 suppliers in 18 countries.
