OTE’s dealings with its suppliers are governed by the principles of merit-based selection and transparency in the terms of cooperation. We rely on a variety of suppliers to support our investment plans and development programs. Cooperation proposals and supplier offers are assessed on the basis of criteria and procedures included both in documented OTE Group processes as well as in our Procurement Policy.
Companies wishing to become suppliers of the OTE Group can contact us through a communication portal known as the SUPPLIERS’ PORTAL.
Registering with the Suppliers’ Portal enables companies to provide us with information about the areas they operate in and the specific products/services they offer, which our Group may need to procure in the future. In addition, we soon plan to use this application as a means for two-way communication and information exchange, to optimize our cooperation with suppliers.
Acknowledging that our responsible operation may be affected by the activities of our suppliers and that, given our size, we have a moral obligation to positively influence our supply chain with the dissemination of Corporate Responsibility principles, we have developed a Supplier Code of Conduct.
