Vallourec expects its suppliers to be aligned with its own Code of Ethics:
> Code of Ethics – Prescription of rules
These principles for action reflect amongst others the way in which Vallourec means to conduct its relationships with suppliers.
Vallourec strives to develop a relationship of confidence and partnership with its suppliers in order to best satisfy its customers' requirements.
Taking the interests of all into consideration and complying with fair contractual terms are the foundation of relationships between Vallourec and its suppliers. Vallourec asks its suppliers to respect the environment, as well as the fundamental rights of their employees, in line with its commitments to its own personnel.
Vallourec has developed a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy, which main objective is to manage the impacts of operations in a responsible manner.
In this context, Vallourec monitors social, environmental and ethical performance of all its suppliers, using a dedicated third party, in compliance with the laws pertaining to the “duty of vigilance”.
