CIPS has awarded LUPC (London Universities Purchasing Consortium) the CIPS Corporate Ethics Mark for their on-going commitment to responsible procurement practices. To gain the accreditation, LUPC took proactive steps in the last 12 months to safeguard against unethical conduct in procurement and supply management, reinforcing their focus on sourcing responsibly.
The Ethical Procurement and Supply accreditation focuses on issues including corruption, fraud, bribery, exploitation, and human rights abuses in supply chains. LUPC has spent time and resource training and developing our Procurement Managers to a high ethical standard, as well as adopting the principles outlined in the CIPS Code of Ethics within our organisation.
Group CEO of CIPS, Malcolm Harrison said, "Responsible procurement remains such an important goal for our society, even during a pandemic, as consumers and citizens become ever more conscious that the organisation with which they study, or from whom they purchase, should constantly follow strong ethical principles.
"LUPC obviously recognise this and have made the time and effort to ensure these ethical principles are firmly in place. I congratulate them on achieving the CIPS Corporate Ethics Mark."
