Implats is committed to inclusive procurement and developing local supply chains that can support the surrounding communities within which we operate. We create shared value through our supply chains, which are key enablers in reducing poverty, unemployment and inequality.

Supplier development

The principles of good corporate governance and sustainability play a leading role in the longevity of companies. At Implats, we extend our commitment to responsible business practices to our supply chain partners too. Creating a sustainable supply chain drives value creation and success, for businesses and for society.

In seeking to create a better future, our relationships are underpinned by the Implats values, to respect, care and deliver, including those with our suppliers and contractors.  In turn, we expect our suppliers and contractors to adhere to the Implats Group’s policies on governance, compliance, ethics, fraud, transparency and risk. We encourage you to learn about these and other aspects of our business.

Prospective vendors must comply with the relevant aspects of health and safety regulations and legislation in all our jurisdictions as well as those pertaining to responsible environmental stewardship. We encourage our suppliers to promote a culture of sustainable development and commit to contributing towards the upliftment of their local communities. We are committed to human rights and expect our suppliers and contractors to similarly demonstrate their commitment. We value innovative suppliers who strive for continuous business, product or service improvements.
