EMCOR UK has vast experience in the selection and management of the supply chain partners who provide specialist services within the total facilities management (TFM) industry.
Our supply chain management team has a single focus: provide outstanding facilities management services. This is a critical component to EMCOR UK’s first-class, seamless approach to our delivery model.
All of EMCOR UK’s supply chain partners have completed a comprehensive supplier assessment to help ensure that their company’s culture, operational policies, and procedures are of the highest standards and aligned to our own.
EMCOR UK’s supply chain management team continually reviews and benchmarks supply chain partners against alternative providers, as well as UK market performance standards.
Our preferred supply chain partners are also subjected to regular cost monitoring and market testing to assess how competitive they are in an evolving market place. This is a continuous process which encourages each supply chain partner to deliver constant improvements.
We engage with our supply chain at both the tender and contract renewal stage to help ensure we understand our customer’s requirements and deliver a solution that best matches those requirements. The quality of our preferred supply chain makes EMCOR UK stand out amongst its competitors, as does the ability to demonstrate open and transparent value to our customers.
Making sure that each supply chain partner demonstrates safe practices is of the utmost importance to EMCOR UK, which is why our current supply chain is compliant with all safety certification requirements, providing customers with the assurance that we only work with robust, safe companies.
It is mandatory that all our subcontractors are accredited by the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CH&SA) and SafeContractor—or an acceptable equivalent. In some cases, supply chain partners must demonstrate a commitment to obtain the appropriate accreditations within three months.
We work towards adopting leading industry standards and techniques in sustainable procurement and aim to be leaders in this field, by applying the recommended principles and process of the ISO 20400 standard for sustainable procurement.
As part of our commitment to supporting a sustainable supply chain, we are a Partner of the award winning Supply Chain Sustainability School and ask all of our supply chain partners to become active members of the School, participating in the School’s learning and development programme.
We are committed to delivering services in a manner that is socially, economically and environmentally responsible which supports our vision to create ‘a better world at work’. To achieve this, we require pro-active support from our supply chain partners. Our Sustainable Supply Chain Charter aims to incorporate EMCOR UK’s, values and priorities around sustainability and our overarching sustainability strategy and objectives. Specifically, the Charter:
Working with Action Sustainability we have developed and implemented a Supply Chain Sustainability dashboard which enable us to measure and report on key sustainable metrics and target improvement within our supply chain impacts on the environment and social value outputs.
