Our approach to supplier engagement

We recognize the opportunities and challenges that a rapidly growing market brings, requiring developers and suppliers to work closely with a  local & global  supplier network.

Over time, our approach to supplier engagement has become more holistic as we strive to maximize the opportunities from our projects progressing through development. To that end, we have created the Supplier Transparency and Engagement Program (STEP), a more proactive approach to supplier engagement.

STEP – improving supplier engagement

STEP is our commitment to continuously improve supplier engagement. Following a review of our existing processes, we have introduced new practices, which include increased opportunities for dialogue with our supplier network. We promise to strive to continuously ‘step up’ our efforts regarding our supplier engagement activities.

Under the STEP initiative, we have developed four initial steps aimed at improving transparency, engagement and information exchange regarding our US projects progressing through development and construction:

  • Step 1
  • Step 2
  • Step 3
  • Step 4
