RWE Group Procurement

Suppliers at RWE

Welcome to the internet pages of RWE Group Procurement 

Our suppliers play a crucial role in achieving our top position in the energy market. This means we need to work with the best and highest performing suppliers to help us achieve this goal. Quality, reliability and cost-effectiveness are vital factors in this context. Only if we optimise the entire value chain together will we continue to achieve palpable competitive advantages in the future. The aim is to jointly create an optimised supply chain. 

At Group Procurement we already work with a large number of German and international suppliers. We want to develop our portfolio of high-performing suppliers further and select the best suppliers worldwide. We are therefore generally interested in working with new business partners. 

In our relationships with suppliers we ensure that we adhere to the RWE Code of Conduct. We thus do not enter into business relationships with suppliers who are publicly known to have breached the principles of the United Nations Global Compact. In our business relationships we also always advocate that the Global Compact be implemented and adhered to in other companies and in particular at our suppliers.

As RWE Group Purchasing we pool and process all procurement activities of the RWE Group for RWE AG, RWE Generation, RWE Power and RWE Supply & Trading as well as indirect requirements of RWE Renewables.

Exception: fuel procurement and the handling of new construction projects

In our work we focus on strategic and operational management and execution of procurement activities as well as standardising business processes. The procurement volume of almost €2 billion p.a. is handled by approximately 200 employees at approx. 30 locations in Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Turkey. 

In addition to RWE Group Procurement, there is also a separate RWE Project Procurement organisation. It is mainly concerned with the construction of new assets for generating electricity from various sources. 

We are looking forward to an open, fair and collaborative partnership!
