CIPS Ethical
Procurement and Supply eLearning and Test

Refreshed for 2020

CIPS Professional Ethics

The Ethical Procurement and Supply eLearning Programme and Test have been refreshed and adapted for 2020. Developed for all levels of procurement professionals, the programme and test enable individuals and organisations to hone their skills and knowledge, and ultimately to demonstrate their commitment to ethical procurement and sustainable supply chains.

Ethical behaviour should be deeply embedded throughout an organisation, with everyone working responsibly together. CIPS eLearning and test helps anyone in the profession to build confidence in employers, suppliers and colleagues.

  

“People, profit and planet are important issues for the public, customers, shareholders and employers. For any organisation behaving ethically is about reputation, it makes good business sense. Suppliers will want to work with you, and you will attract the right talent to work for you. Everyone working in our profession needs to be aware of the impact that these issues can have on these key stakeholders.”

Malcolm Harrison Group CEO, CIPS
