Our Expectations of Suppliers, Contractors and Business Partners

SEMIRARA MINING AND POWER CORPORATION (SMPC) is an integrated energy enterprise that is committed to provide reliable, affordable energy to the Philippines. We operate towards achieving a rational and disciplined balance between business sustainability and inclusive growth.

 

Our stakeholders expect us to uphold the high standards of responsible and ethical corporate citizenship and to encourage a similar commitment by suppliers, contractors and business partners (Suppliers) with which we do business.

 

 

 

Employees are expected to share SMPC’s commitment to uphold legal, ethical and generally recognized standards with Suppliers in carrying out procurement duties and responsibilities. Our procurement decisions are made on the basis of quality, service, price, delivery and best value.

 

By laying out our expectations of Suppliers, we expect Suppliers to respect our corporate values and to demonstrate responsible supply chain management. SMPC may elect to not work with or cease business relationships with Suppliers who do not meet our expectations or are unwilling to take corrective action on noncompliance to ensure we do business the right sustainable way.
