Sustainable procurement

We consider the environmental, social and economic consequences of our procurement practices and raw material sourcing. Our procurement policy and the supporting procedures set out how the procurement process operates, its application standards and clarifies the roles and responsibilities of those involved in procurement.

In addition, the policy extends to any third-party organisations spending ACWA Power funds, ensuring that any organisations with which we collaborate, such as contractors, also consider their environmental, social and economic impact in their procurement practices.

Local content

The Company is committed to supporting and implementing local content across all project types during construction and operation. The minimum requirement for local content during construction is 15% and can reach up to 40% depending on the project type while the minimum during operation is 50%. This requires the inclusion and development of local suppliers in addition to attracting global players.

ACWA Power overachieved the local content targets required across the different projects in Saudi Arabia and strive to continue this track record in the projects under construction and in operation phase.
