We prioritize procurement of goods and services from local suppliers who meet the standards we require. In some cases, we support local businesses and skill development to meet these standards. We also check that our suppliers comply with our Shell Supplier Principles, which provide a simple and consistent framework of our expectations for all our suppliers in the following areas:
- Business integrity;
- Labour conditions and human rights; and
- Social performance.
Shell’s Commitment to Indigenous Peoples in Canada
At Shell Canada we believe Indigenous communities are important partners; our projects must be designed and implemented to minimize impacts, provide shared value and enhance relationships with Indigenous Peoples. Building and maintaining trusting relationships, investing in human capacity, and sharing economic benefits provides opportunities to maintain a social license to operate, reduce project risks, and builds a diverse and inclusive workforce.
