Select sustainable suppliers
When looking at the supply chain, your suppliers are the first link towards more sustainable practices. By making a good selection of your suppliers, you will gain access to more sustainable equipment and tools.
Suggested action points

- Interact with your suppliers and discuss your operation standards. This can lead to more sustainable solutions.
- Demand that your suppliers sign a supplier charter and commit to your sustainability criteria.
- Carry out a sustainability audit of your suppliers.
Partner Excellence Programme
Speedy Hire sees its suppliers as their first link towards more sustainable practices. Therefore, they organize six times a year a Partner Excellence Programme for their suppliers to work closely on product development and sustainable innovation. This also provides an excellent forum for engaging suppliers as active stakeholders.
In 2015 Speedy Hire introduced the first Partner Excellence Programme PLUS, for those partners who have already been through the standard programme, continuing their commitment to collaboration and on-going dialogue with their supply chain.
