Purchasing is a strategic initiative for Orano.

To meet our customers’ requirements, we need various raw materials, supplies and services.

Our purchasing policy is built on four basic principles:

  • To analyze markets and build up a worldwide panel of suppliers
  • To guide all processes involving suppliers
  • To Involve our suppliers in a continuous improvement approach
  • To guarantee the effectiveness of the sourcing function by continuously monitoring its performance

The Supply Chain Purchasing Department is responsible for:

  • defining the corporate purchasing policy and controlling its implementation
  • setting up common procedures and tools to leverage best practices
  • seeking the best sourcing opportunities
  • negotiating and deploying frame agreements to be used by all entities
  • committing our suppliers to sustainable development
