The total number or suppliers rose by 15.3% compared to 2010, largely due to the rise in the number of suppliers in countries like Spain, Argentina, Ecuador, the United Sates and Portugal. In this period, we needed a greater number suppliers to be able to cope with the different projects that the company has under way, the programs on hold at some of our industrial complexes and a marked increase in exploration activity.

In 2011 we increased the number of countries in which we purchase locally, with our entry into Guiana, Indonesia and Japan.

We do no always have access to local suppliers capable of providing specialist services or materials. On such occasions, we must resort to international suppliers.

Purchasing and contracts through special employment centers

As well as having disabled workers on its staff, Repsol has made a commitment to boost job creation for people with disabilities, by purchasing goods and services from companies deemed Special Employment Centers (SECs).

In Spain, these centers are intended to be a means of integrating people with disabilities into the labor market. These are companies in which at least 70% of the workforce are people with a disability that reduces their capacity for work by at least 33%.

Repsol supports centers that promote employment for people with disabilities by awarding them contracts for the provision of goods and services that do not fall within critical areas and when they do not exceed certain amounts. We also hold calls for tender which we weight in favor of SECs, to encourage the integration of people with disabilities into the labor market, even when this might imply an increase in the differential cost of the goods or service.

Euros 2009 2010 2011
Purchases to SECs 1,000,000 1,900,000 4,200,000

In 2011, Repsol made purchases from a total of 51 special employment centers in Spain, at a value of €4.2 million. The goods and services they provided were promotional articles, IT consumables, office goods, document printing, gardening, cleaning, portering and catering services and occupational safety material.
