We support our suppliers to improve their sustainability

Our Supplier Sustainability Portal is designed to engage our strategic and higher risk suppliers in a range of environmental, social, governance (ESG) and product compliance topics.

The Portal is delivered in alignment with our One Planet: Engineering with Purpose Sustainability Strategy.

Available to both suppliers and supplier facing Group colleagues, the Portal provides free third-party training on key ESG topics and helps us define and uphold our public commitments to mutually beneficial, long-term and sustainable supply chain partnerships.

Working together, we can progress in our ambition to implement the highest possible standards in industrial sustainability.

Meeting challenges together to create mutual value

In February 2022, the Russian invasion of Ukraine threatened the stability of our already challenged global supply chains. The cost of nickel spiked more than 250% in 24 hours, leading the London Metal Exchange to temporarily suspend nickel trading. Huge uncertainty overtook the nickel foundry industry, which is fundamental to key components in our steam products. Our teams moved fast, engaging 20 key suppliers in a win-win agreement. By flexing our pricing contracts and shortening payment terms we helped foundry members maintain their cash flow liquidity and stabilise their businesses. Working together, we protected our valued partnerships and secured essential supply on behalf of our customers.
