Our purpose is to provide energy needed today, while building a better world of energy for tomorrow. We welcome suppliers who support our vision of being a leading energy company in a net zero world.
With safety, sustainability and responsibility at the heart of all we do, we're keen to establish strong relationships with our suppliers because we know how critical they are to our business.
Below you’ll find information on our approach to procurement, including an update on our new Sourcing-to-Contract system.
JAGGAER SOURCE TO CONTRACT
Through the early summer of 2021, we are introducing a new Sourcing to Contract solution across SSE. As one of the most widely trusted procurement systems in the industry, Jaggaer Source to Contract will help to optimize our Source-to-Contract process by connecting our suppliers, sourcing activities and contracts in one place. Our process will continue to be free to use.
As we draw closer to Jaggaer going live, suppliers who already use our current Emptoris Sourcing-to-Contract system will receive more information about Jaggaer and an invitation to set up a Jaggaer profile. You’ll also be directed towards helpful information and sources of support to help you continue to work with us.
SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT CODE
Our Sustainable Procurement Code outlines the expectations and requirements on SSE’s suppliers and contractors, and their supply chains.
To ensure that SSE’s business is conducted ethically, sustainably and within the law, SSE expects its suppliers to meet the principles outlined in the Code and Guidance. This means as a minimum complying with local laws and regulations and respecting internationally recognised human and labour rights, however the values of fairness and respect are equally important to SSE.
