Our vision is to create the future of procurement with digital and pioneering practices, connected to experts worldwide.
Procurement with purpose
Vodafone Group evaluates suppliers on their commitments to diversity, inclusion and the environment when they tender for new work, ensuring that the supply chain contributes towards Vodafone’s purpose to improve the lives of 1 billion people, while halving its environmental impact by 2025.
A supplier’s ‘purpose’ accounts for 20% of the evaluation criteria for a ‘Request For Quotation’ (RFQ) to provide Vodafone with products or services. Suppliers will be assessed on their commitment and performance to diversity and inclusion, the environment and health and safety in categories where it is a risk.
