IHS Towers strives to identify vendors 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 vendors 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 vendors to be proactive in responding to changing conditions.

Our vendor qualification process is based on vendors' 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 vendors 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’ Vendor Code of Conduct articulates the ethical, social, environmental standards we apply to ourselves and require all our vendors to adhere to.

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

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

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

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

We are always looking to improve through operational delivery and innovative solutions.  Vendors with an interest in working with IHS Towers can provide your information via the IHS Supply Gateway portal. This enables the relevant IHS Towers Procurement team to receive information about potential vendors, your capabilities and product/service descriptions.

If, or when, these details are of interest, a member of the IHS Towers Procurement team may contact you to explore potential opportunities.

Please note that we source products and services in a competitive marketplace. Submission of your details into the IHS Towers Supply Gateway database does not commit IHS Towers to an award of business or invitation to a sourcing process, nor does it mean qualification of your company as an IHS Towers-approved vendor, or any other obligation.

By sending us your company information and details, you consent to the processing of your personal data for contractor/vendor selection purposes, as set out within our privacy notice.
