Supporting Global Ethics Day and Anti-Slavery Day

“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
