UEM Edgenta has a direct economic and social impact on its suppliers and vendors through its procurement activities. A wide spectrum of products and services are procured from vendors, entrepreneurs as well as local and multinational companies through tenders and direct purchase orders. We strive to ensure our sustainable procurement practices positively affect local and regional economic growth and development depending on the locations in which we operate.

Internally, we are guided by our Procurement Policy and make conscious decisions to purchase from local sources that create local economic growth. Purchasing locally helps reduce emissions from transportation and mitigates the risk of supply chain disruptions.
