Turning cost into value
The Purchasing function at Arkema is global with a well-established presence on all continents. It focuses on the supply of the right products and services at the right price and the right time. Specialists in logistics, direct and indirect sourcing, collaborate on a daily basis to maximize benefits for customers, turning cost into value.
We consider suppliers as valuable contributors to our mission. That is why we build with them sustainable strategic partnerships that share our vision of cost effective, locally adapted and innovative procurement in strict compliance with Arkema Supplier Code of Conduct and CSR commitments.
Client value creation is based on three items:
Dedicated to the procurement of raw materials, energy and packaging, Direct Sourcing targets products that meet specifications and regulatory requirements.
As a responsible player committed to sustainable development and renewable products and solutions, Arkema supports renewable raw materials and other sustainable development initiatives, and performs regular supplier audits to ensure quality for clients.
In charge of a wide range of purchasing categories and vendors, Indirect Sourcing is committed to competitive and agile purchasing.
We pursue ambitious operational efficiency targets that we develop together with our suppliers for our internal and external stakeholders.
As part of the Supply Chain organization, Logistics procurement seeks the most efficient solutions to serve our customers while optimizing the cost and the CO2 footprint of our supply chain.
Safety and strict compliance with all local regulations are part of our DNA; we conduct periodic assessments of our suppliers with regard to their HSE policy and records.
