What we do
Aviva’s global procurement spend is around £6bn annually. We buy goods and services from hundreds of suppliers around the world, so providing revenue for companies large and small, helping to create jobs and contributing to local economies.
While the UK, the Eurozone and Canada are where we do most of our business and where our procurement spend is greatest, emerging markets in Eastern Europe and Asia are becoming increasingly important. Each Aviva business is responsible for their own procurement and for obtaining the best value for money and quality, and priority is given to those certified to ISO 9001 or similar international standards.
When we ask our suppliers to demonstrate their corporate responsibility, we recognise that local conditions and culture might have an influence on their ability to provide formal, systematic evidence. We also recognise that in many of our businesses, procurement is not a specialised or centralised function, so we also need to share consistent frameworks and learning across the group.
But acknowledging the diversity of our supply chain does not mean that we cannot make progress. In fact, it’s close collaboration with our suppliers that has helped us move forward together this year.
