INTERSOS procures goods, services, and works globally and on the front-line of emergencies, bringing assistance to victims of armed conflicts, natural disasters and extreme exclusion with particular attention to the protection of the most vulnerable people. Since 1992 our humanitarian workers have been helping people affected by humanitarian crises: we provide first aid, food, shelter, medical assistance and basic goods.

INTERSOS integrates principles of environmental sustainability in its procurement processes, adapting logistics and supply chain activities that encourage the conservation of natural resources and protect global ecosystems that support the health and well-being of populations. We rationalise the distribution of goods and services throughout global networks to maximise intervention effectiveness and minimise waste and our carbon footprint, fostering when possible the local economies.

INTERSOS understands that the principles of efficiency, transparency and accountability in its procurement processes play an indispensable role in the governance and financial management of our organisation, therefore staff and suppliers must adhere to the highest standards of accountability, which requires honest and ethical conduct and zero tolerance towards corruption and misconduct – suppliers must abide by the ethics clauses specified in the INTERSOS Organisation Management and Control Model and INTERSOS Supplier Code of Conduct. We conduct ethical procurement compliant with internal policies and procedures, external laws and regulations and humanitarian standards whilst ensuring efficiency and cost effectiveness and guaranteeing equal treatment and opportunity between vendors.
