Suppliers
We maintain stable and lasting relationships with our suppliers; our guiding principle is to always respect the environment as well as promote practices and initiatives with a responsible environmental impact. Therefore, when selecting suppliers and executing contracts we focus on the need to reduce the environmental impacts of goods, services and works (as well as the impacts the Green Procurement policy may have on internal stakeholders and throughout supply chains).
Procurement processes and payment terms

We have been pursuing a procurement policy at both the domestic and international level, opening up to competition even sectors with a high level of technological specialisation.

We transparently report on the commitments undertaken, the actions carried out, and the results achieved with respect to the management of procurement processes and supply chains, which play a crucial role in the adoption of corporate social responsibility policies.

Goal:

  • Meet contractual deadlines: ensure that all documents required by law are in order
  • Comply with payment terms: enter into an agreement with a financial institution allowing suppliers to sell the invoices they issue with recourse; in addition, advances on payments are also allowed, where duly justified

Results

In 2018, only one complaint was filed with the competent administrative authorities

Green Procurement Policy

In recent years, we have been focusing on the environmental sustainability of our procurement, including by implementing a Green Procurement policy.

ENAV seeks to reduce the environmental impacts of the goods and services it purchases and of the works accomplished.

The ENAV Group has also made its green procurement policy completely transparent in order to allow its leading suppliers to comply with the requirements of a more sustainable demand, as well as potential new business partners to respond proactively, proposing innovative solutions to new demands.

Main actions

The green procurement policy represents a substantial change that is being implemented gradually and consistently through a series of key actions:

  • selecting high-priority goods and services in order to define environmental standards for goods and services to be incorporated into procurement processes
  • defining a communication programme targeting existing and potential suppliers
  • implementing an internal awareness and training plan

In addition, we pay more and more attention to maintenance and construction works on ENAV infrastructure. With the “Sustainable Building Sites” Project, the Group places special emphasis on topics such as safeguarding the environment, using resources sensibly, protecting the health and well-being of the workers involved and, last but not least, of ENAV's employees who use the facilities.

Working together with the various corporate functions, ENAV has defined the technical specifications and environmental standards that the products, services and works it purchases must meet in order to be considered green.

In addition, using electronic signatures as part of the Group's contract award procedures and dematerialising documents have significantly contributed to reducing direct and indirect costs (such as paper, printing, toners), while also boosting organisational efficiency (sustainability, security, authenticity, compliance with deadlines). Moreover, these practices are considered to be anti-corruption measures, ensuring the transparency and security of information.

Techno Sky Green Procurement Policy

When selecting its suppliers, also Techno Sky places special emphasis on sustainability, accounting for factors such as:

  • purchasing products and services with a lower environmental impact based on how they are produced (e.g. stationery, PPE)
  • buying CE-certified products;
  • assessing suppliers in terms of human rights and workplace health and safety

In line with the Parent Company's policy, Techno Sky has launched a Green Public Procurement project in order to incorporate environmental and social issues into its supplier selection/contract award procedures, as well as an e-procurement project aimed at dematerialising all stages of the supplier selection/contract award process.
