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 2019 Leonardo performed 558 investigations into suppliers relating to ethical/anti-corruption concerns and activated ca. 50 actions against suppliers (such as pre-qualifications revoked, not renewal of contracts) as a result of these investigations.
