For this reason, Leonardo asks suppliers for precise commitments and strict economic, financial, ethical-legal, social and environmental standards. We verify suppliers’ commitments during the pre-qualification phase and monitor the approach throughout the supply relationship. Furthermore, by means of our purchasing contracts or subcontracts’ approval, we ask our suppliers to ensure that their own subsuppliers observe the conditions set forth in Leonardo’s Code of Ethics, in the Anti-Corruption Code and in the Organizational, Management and Control Model, as well as the subsuppliers comply with laws and directives regarding corruption and bribery.

All phases of the selection process and the relationship with the supplier are managed through the Procurement web portal, which guarantees transparency and traceability of information.
In 2018 Leonardo performed around 4,500 pre-qualifications and completed around 4,600 qualifications of suppliers.
Leonardo blacklisted six suppliers as a result of violations of ethical and anti-corruption principles and revoked the pre-qualification of eight suppliers for ethical-legal reasons.
Concerning the final beneficiary due diligence, Leonardo launched in-depth verifications on over 63 suppliers due to the presence of trust companies in the control ownership structure. Among these, Leonardo revoked the pre-qualification of 19 suppliers who did not disclose their final beneficiaries.
