in MPS Banking Group
We believe that our suppliers' activities count a great deal in our performance.
We work with over 19,000 companies, of which over 70% are small and local.
The services assigned to them range from car hire to IT systems and from maintenance to electricity supply.
This gives an idea of the complexity of procurement management and how important the supply chain is in economic management of the company and as regards our overall impact on society and the environment.
Because of this, we establish stable business relationships, always seeking mutually beneficial conditions. Our choice of suppliers is guided by quality and price, but we also require integrity and respect for their workers' rights and for the environment. We consider certified companies on a preferential basis.
