Sustainable management in the supply chain

Promoting sustainability throughout our value chain

Repsol's commitment to sustainability encompasses the entire life cycle of our operations and disseminates compliance of the most stringent international standards amongst employees, contractors, suppliers, and partners.

Code of Ethics and Conduct for suppliers

Our suppliers play an important role in Repsol’s value chain. For this reason, we promote, encourage, and expect our contractors to adopt behaviours in line with the Code of Ethics and Conduct for suppliers, aimed at reciprocal benefit. All the companies that maintain a contractual relationship with us—regardless of the type of contract that determines their professional or work relationship—must respect this Code.

Moreover, business partners, which include partners, joint-ventures, non-operated, contractors, suppliers, and other collaborating companies, are an extension of Repsol and, for this reason, must act accordingly with the Company code PDF | 1.0 MB.

Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals

As proof of our commitment to sustainability and the United Nations 2030 Agenda, we have launched, throughout the entire value chain, an SDG Boosting Plan that seeks to integrate the commitment, dissemination, and action in favor of this global agenda into our culture.

One of the tools that we have developed to raise awareness in this area is a dissemination course, called ODStories, that works as a fictitious social network and navigates through the different SDGs showing examples of how Repsol contributes to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In this interactive tool, the user can leave comments and get acces to explanatory and educational videos, infographics, surveys, and much more.

Security and human rights

We are members of the United Nations Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, which aims to ensure the security of operations in sensitive areas and conflict zones through work procedures that ensure respect for human rights.

Promoting a safe and protected work environment

Our Safety and Environment Strategy defines the key lines of action on which we focus our health, safety, and environmental efforts.

The Division of Procurement and Contracts is responsible for rating suppliers and contractors, including safety criteria in the questionnaires and audits, and evaluating their performance in terms of safety management.

With the aim of guaranteeing the health and integrity of our employees, customers, and suppliers, we constantly promote the dissemination of the 10 Basic Safety Rules through different means of communication and training materials.

Offering corporate security courses on human rights

The sustainability of the Company’s supply chain promotes employability and workers' rights among local communities and promotes local economic development.

At Repsol, we foster best practices among suppliers and contractors and require compliance with the Anti-Corruption Policy and human rights standards.

In the event that our operations or those of partners and contractors have any social or environmental impact, we actively cooperate in their remediation. We include human rights clauses in contracts with partners and suppliers, and we carry out social audits and give support with awareness-raising activities to guarantee due diligence of both human rights and grievance mechanisms.
