Procurement

Our several thousand suppliers are highly significant in the Hydro value chain – and crucial to our continued success.

Prior to working with Hydro, all suppliers are subject to a qualification process. Our corporate policies regarding procurement and the qualification process are common for all business areas.

 

Our policies require that Hydro’s suppliers meet certain standards regarding 

  • quality
  • health
  • safety and environment
  • financial sustainability
  • corporate social responsibility, including human rights, anti-corruption and working conditions.

More information about HSE requirements and corporate social responsibility policies are available from your local Hydro site.

Compliance with the required standards must be documented in the qualification documents and contracts.

Local specifications

Our procurement organization is decentralized to suit the various business areas around the world. While particular qualification requirements may differ, our corporate policies regarding procurement and the qualification process are common for all business areas.
