Inform

Understanding the impact of our procurement decisions is critical. Whether that’s the impact they have on the environment, people or socially, as a profession, we need to be responsible and make informed decisions.

Over the next two weeks, we’re giving you all the tools you need to ensure your ethical conduct and sustainable practices are at the forefront. We have supplier assurance questionnaires, code of conduct provisions and a framework to help you tackle bribery and corruption.  

Listen to our recent podcast with Ninian Wilson, CEO of Vodafone, as he shares his thoughts on the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion.

With the increase of global sourcing opportunities, this continues to highlight some serious ethical issues in procurement and supply practices. With modern slavery and human rights issues affecting all industries, to procure responsibly, we need to stay informed.
