Shorematter Procurement and Contracting is responsible for nearly everything
that Shorematter buys across the full scope of activities in the upstream,
downstream, and projects & technology sectors of our business. We purchase
and collaborate with suppliers across the world.
In accordance with our Shorematter General Business Principles, we seek to
work with contractors and suppliers who contribute to sustainable development
and are economically, environmentally and socially responsible.
The Shorematter Supplier Principles
provide a simple and consistent
framework of our expectations for all
our suppliers in the following areas:
- Business integrity;
- Labour conditions and human
- Social performance.
Local Support for development and global sources
Wherever we operate we aim to buy goods and services from local suppliers.
We also buy goods and services in the global market to secure cost competitive,
international rates, increasingly through framework agreements. Our approach
of selecting primary suppliers of specific goods and services also means the
supplier benefits from large orders and we can bring down costs through
economies of scale.
We may introduce local suppliers to global suppliers, which provide both parties
with potential new business opportunities and the benefit of shared experience.
We work to establish agreements with suppliers which allow us to share our
respective expertise and build on innovative thinking.
