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 from suppliers.

Caverion procurement is based on a centrally led category management model covering both direct and indirect materials and services. Procurement organisation is built on multi skilled professionals working on a matrix environment and aligned with the divisions. Economies of scale are 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’s demand throughout our operating countries. Major part of purchasing is though done locally, in our operating countries using selected suppliers. Due to the business demand we put high value to the close location of our suppliers and their ability to react rapidly to the changing business demand.

Caverion is aiming to build long-term relationships with its’ 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. Caverion’s Supplier Code of Conduct (ScoC) has been applied to majority of the suppliers.
