IHS Towers strives to identify suppliers who will be able to support our business operations and our commitment to high ethical standards. Our goal is to obtain quality products and services, that deliver innovative solutions and represent best value. 

IHS Towers works with suppliers who understand our business, culture and expectations, make and meet commitments, and help us to identify and implement the best possible solutions.

As we operate in a competitive and fast-paced environment, we expect our suppliers to be proactive in responding to changing conditions.

Our supplier qualification process is based on suppliers' ability to comply and align with our standards in terms of compliance, working conditions, health, safety and security, anti-bribery and anti-corruption, business governance, financial stability and technical capability.

Sustainable and responsible sourcing

We aim to select those who share our values and our ethical commitments. While we recognize that our suppliers operate in different geographic and economic environments, we expect products and services to be delivered in a way that supports IHS Towers’ high standards and contributes to our reputation and that of our customers. IHS Towers’ Supplier Code of Conduct articulates the ethical, social, environmental standards we apply to ourselves and require all our suppliers to adhere to.

We expect high standards of conduct from our suppliers and will not tolerate any behaviors that conflict with our strict compliance codes around:

  • Bribery
  • Corruption and fraud
  • Threats to health, security and safety
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Improper activities

We pre-qualify suppliers, for certain types of supply, which involves satisfying ourselves that they meet our standards. Certain suppliers will be selected for audit and close monitoring based on risk assessment or supplier performance.

Planned and ad-hoc reviews of supply chain risk are undertaken by our business.
