On completion of this module, learners will be able to explain the concepts and implicationsof sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility and recognise the potential environmental impact of procurement and supply operations.
Company reputation can be severely damaged if the organisation or one of its suppliers, is seen to be neglecting sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Similarly, against a background of increasing public and governmental concern for the environment, organisations have come under increasing pressure to reduce the environmental impact of their operations. This module is designed for those working in procurement and supply who should recognise the responsibility which they have for ensuring sustainable and socially responsible practices and the importance of the environmental impact of their decisions and approaches.
