Raising awareness of the importance of responsible and ethical procurement

CIPS CEO Malcolm Harrison says “When I talk about the ethics agenda, I mean it in the broadest sense to include modern slavery and sustainability, but more than anything transparency in everything we do – ethics+ if you like. Ethics needs to be incorporated into all day-to-day business decisions, almost without thinking. It has become second nature to consider the implications of holding personal data or blocking fire doors, so how do you ensure that ethics has the same impact?”
