Supply chain

Eltel’s subcontractors and suppliers are significant partners in our value chain, helping us to ensure reliable delivery and quality of services to our customers.

Eltel takes overall responsibility for its subcontractors. This includes their work environment, employees and ultimate deliveries to the customer. Our partners are included in our systematic work on health and safety, and we have clear processes in place that ensure they sign up to the Eltel Code of Conduct and commit to our other key policies and principles.

Eltel - Code of Conduct

Managing the supply chain

Ensuring the quality of our sourcing and supply chain management is an important and integrated part of our business and involves financial and legal responsibilities. Digital development and tools for making life-cycle calculations on projects are increasing and are continuously being evaluated.

To ensure optimal impact of our core operational improvements, subcontractors and suppliers have been included in the implementation of improved production planning and digital route planning.

We recommend that our suppliers and partners have valid ISO certifications; including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001. If they do not hold such certification, they are required to demonstrate their compliance by signing an agreement and participating in Eltel’s e-learning courses.

Achievements in 2022

Greater supplier engagement on sustainability performance and reporting.                                                                                 

Setting a supplier engagement climate target to ensure that 70% of suppliers by emissions will have science-based targets by 2026.

Supply chain risks

Eltel takes responsibility for its supply chain as it poses both financial and legal risks to the company. Eltel categorises subcontractors and suppliers according to their level of risk exposure. Partners rated as the highest risk, category A, are integrated into Eltel’s procedures for reporting HSE incidents
and monthly working hours.
