Our role

We do not only choose and manage suppliers. We are responsible for creating ethical and sustainable partnerships for the whole Group, focusing on the development of the companies that choose to work with us. We see suppliers as partners who make their unique expertise available to the Group each day thereby helping us to innovate even more.

For a sustainable supply chain

Being a sustainable Group means guaranteeing a more responsible supply chain. The sustainability of the supply chain is monitored from the first phases of qualification and for the full duration of the relationship. 

The qualification process for suppliers of the Italgas Group involves checking important sustainability criteria (ESG – Environmental, Social, Governance) assessed together with their overall performances. The process to become a supplier involves:

  • Preliminary analysis of the documentary and technical requirements, depending on the complexity of the goods category of reference.
  • Analysis of the sustainability/ESG requirements.
  • Analysis of the health, safety and quality requirements.
  • Analysis of the economic-financial requirements.

In this process, we are on the frontline supporting you with integrating sustainability into your business.
