We’re pleased to announce that Tower scored a top mark of 100 out of 100 in all audited areas during our assessment by Achilles for 2022.

That’s not easy to achieve and strengthens our place as a valued member of the UVDB community.

A top mark (in Category D, one of toughest categories) obviously makes us very proud. But it’s more important that it gives our partners the highest standard of supply chain reassurance.

It’s vital that our partners know they are engaging with a business that can demonstrate robust internal processes and a commitment to the environment and corporate social responsibility.

This is valuable peace of mind when businesses are constantly having to adapt to ever-more stringent industry regulation and ensure they are taking advantage of the latest technologies.

What is Achilles UVDB?

We became a qualified supplier to Achilles UVDB in 2017. The Utility Vendor Database is a pre-qualification scheme designed to ensure accountability and ethical considerations throughout the UK utility sector.

Achilles enables trading partners to share high-quality, structured, real-time data and insightful analytics. They help buyers to manage risk and enable suppliers to increase market reach.

UVDB connects businesses with community members to help mitigate these risks and ensure the highest standards of compliance when doing business with suppliers such as Tower.
