CAPE became the seventh company to be added to the CIPS Corporate Ethical Register last year – so it can now display the CIPS Corporate Ethical Mark on its website, literature, email footers and business cards.
This recognises the steps it has taken to train staff involved in supplier sourcing and supplier management in ethical procurement and in adopting ethical values as part of its corporate code of conduct. All 13 of its procurement professionals are CIPS members – either affiliate, studying or full – and have taken its Ethical Procurement and Supply e-learning course and passed the online test. Being on the register means that companies have committed to ethical sourcing and management of their suppliers, valid for one year.
Cape provides critical industrial services principally to the energy and natural resources sectors and employs more than 18,000 people working across 21 countries. In 2013 it reported adjusted revenue of £697.1 million.
“Cape is a business with a strong set of values. We take CSR very seriously and ensure those values are deeply ingrained in our culture. We are pleased to see this recognised through our addition to the CIPS Corporate Ethical Register which reflects the way in which we handle procurement,” said Mark Greenwood, Cape’s head of procurement.
