Our approach to supply assurance and supplier due diligence

Clarion Housing Group is committed to delivering and maintaining an ethical and sustainable supply chain.

Our procurement, supplier assurance and due diligence processes and policies are designed to ensure that our suppliers share our values and meet our standards for quality, sustainability, and compliance. Our suppliers are asked to demonstrate a high level of assurance.

Clarion has chosen Achilles Information Limited as its assurance and due diligence provider to manage, on our behalf, the supplier assurance aspects of our procurement and contract management procedures.

If you wish to become a supplier of goods and services for Clarion Housing Group, you should enrol with Achilles Information Limited and become a supplier with Silver + Achilles Network status, however not having this registration does not bar you from bidding for Clarion contracts.
