How our pre-qualification standard works

The TenP Paper pre-qualification platform is inspired by the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, which the Sofidel Group has joined as a Participating Member. It was created to assess the environmental, social, and economic sustainability performance of suppliers, and identify common risks and solutions to improve sustainability within our supply chain. 

After completing the self-assessment questionnaire, which is available in ten languages, we score the supplier companies between 0 and 100 and place them in one of these three classes of merit:

Excellent suppliers


≥ 80

Sustainable suppliers



Non-sustainable suppliers


≤ 50

We consider the development of fully collaborative relationships with our suppliers to be strategic and we work to identify common objectives and paths. We have developed dedicated training and e-learning tools to help non-sustainable suppliers improve their sustainability performance.

Are you a Sofidel supplier?

Register on the TenP Paper pre-qualification platform to start or repeat the self-assessment process or, if you have already done so, view the results of your questionnaire. The interface used by Sofidel for its supplier qualification process is the SPL module of the Ariba platform.

The system for pre-qualifying Sofidel suppliers was developed in collaboration with Global Compact Network Italy (GCNI), of which Sofidel is a Promoting Founder.
