Purchasing and sustainable development charter
The integration of sustainable development into our purchasing processes means mapping the risks and motivating the people involved – opinion leaders, buyers and suppliers.
Whether we are buying products or services, favouring innovative suppliers who are committed to sustainable development is one of our fundamental requirements. To manage and structure our relations with suppliers around a common objective, we have put in place a Purchasing and Sustainable Development charter based on quantifiable criteria. Signing the charter commits our suppliers to respecting regulations and implementing sustainable initiatives to reduce their carbon footprint.
The agreements entered into with the two big names in tyres, Goodyear and Michelin, for regrooving and retreading directly support the promotion of sustainable travel.
For Petit Forestier, the choice of a supplier is based on ability, reliability and trust.
After signing an agreement, Petit Forestier issues a national listing for application in the French network and the international sites.
Petit Forestier favours loyal partnerships with its suppliers and, above and beyond a simple commercial arrangement, often works with suppliers in the early stages when launching new products.
