Procurement

Suppliers play a significant role in the delivery chain of Caverion. Most of the technical systems and solutions designed and installed by Caverion include components,  materials or services bought outside.

Caverion procurement is based on a center lead category management model covering both direct and indirect materials and services. Organization is built on multi skilled professionals working on a matrix environment and aligned with the divisions. Economies of scale are fully captured by utilizing group-wide best practices and purchasing from best suppliers globally in a common way.

Caverion has several common suppliers serving the Group needs throughout our operating countries. Major part of our procurement is though done locally,  in our operating countries using selected suppliers. Due to the business needs we put high value to the close location of our suppliers and their abilities to react rapidly to the changing business needs.

Caverion is aiming to build long-term relationships with our suppliers. All suppliers are treated equally and honestly following the applicable laws and regulations. We do not tolerate any forms of bribery or other illegal payments in the relationships with our suppliers. We regularly evaluate our suppliers, follow their  performance and assess potential risks. Based on our own evaluation, there is no serious risk of prohibition of child labor by our suppliers.
