Sustainable Supplier Relationship Charter

Since December 2, 2021, Orano has signed the “Sustainable Supplier Relationship Charter” ( and in this respect demonstrates a desire to implement a continuous improvement plan with its partners and respecting the rights and duties of each.

This commitment is supplemented by the appointment of an Orano internal mediator, which can be seized by our suppliers when a situation could not be resolved through amicable negotiation. The internal mediator will seek a concerted solution that suits both parties. He can be reached at

With many dynamic markets in the U.S., the needs of Orano are dramatically expanding in many areas.

Orano’s approach to purchasing is to widen and optimize the scope of its suppliers by selecting the best technical and financial solutions.

To meet the requirements of local or international projects and satisfy our customers, long-term partnerships are established with certain suppliers.

Orano favors its providers’ continuous improvement and creativity by stating in its contracts the expected performance, costs, and time limits. Joint design initiatives are highly sought and sustainable development standards required.

In order to get the most of its procurement practices and widen the scope of its suppliers and partners, Orano invites you to complete a questionnaire providing information about your company, its expertise, references and certifications.

Please note that some fields (quality references and financial information) are mandatory.

Orano is committed to responding as quickly as possible, whatever the outcome of your application.
