Procurement

Our several thousand suppliers are highly significant in the Hydro value chain – and crucial to our continued success.

Prior to working with Hydro, all suppliers are subject to a qualification process.

Hydro has a decentralized procurement organization to suit its various business areas around the world. While particular qualification requirements may differ, our corporate policies regarding procurement and the qualification process are common for all business areas.

These policies require that Hydro’s suppliers meet certain standards regarding quality, health, safety and environment (HSE), financial sustainability and corporate social responsibility, including human rights, anti-corruption and working conditions.

To ensure commitment from suppliers, qualification documents and contracts shall include requirements to quality, HSE and corporate social responsibility. Hydro expects all business partners to comply with the principles set out in Hydro’s Supplier Code of Conduct.
