CIPS 24 June 2021

The company’s Global Sourcing & Procurement staff completed ethics training and passed a test in global fraud, corruption, bribery and environmental concerns in procurement and supply chain management.

CIPS has awarded the Dun & Bradstreet Corporation, a leading global provider of business decisioning data and analytics, the CIPS corporate ethics mark after the company’s Global Sourcing & Procurement staff completed ethics training and passed a test in global fraud, corruption, bribery and environmental concerns in procurement and supply chain management.

The CIPS Ethical Procurement and Supply eLearning and Test has been recently updated and renewed to provide quality learning and guidance for organizations that want to stay ahead of industry standards and best practices. Developed for all levels of procurement professionals, the program and test enable individuals and organizations to hone their skills and knowledge, and ultimately demonstrate their commitment to ethical practice.

Commenting on the achievement, CIPS Americas Vice President Bill Michels said, “During such turbulent times in the world, the Dun & Bradstreet Global Sourcing & Procurement team was committed to keeping ethics at the heart of what they do by testing their knowledge and competence, and ultimately achieving the ethics mark. Global sourcing and procurement organizations with high standards are a draw to investors, stakeholders and staff who want to work for companies that actively invest in their talent and pursue ethical practices when managing their supply chain.”

“As an organization that has helped companies manage risk for 180 years, it is an absolute priority for Dun & Bradstreet to lead by example and do the right thing – to not only be a responsible business, but also provide solutions that help other companies navigate regulatory, ethical, and social demands so that they can turn the risks of today into business opportunities tomorrow,” said Bryan Hipsher, Chief Financial Officer of Dun & Bradstreet.

“Achieving the CIPS Corporate Ethics Mark and being listed on the CIPS Corporate Ethics Register is another milestone in our journey to grow as a globally ethical business.” Companies that achieve the ethics mark are included in the CIPS Corporate Ethics Register which includes various sectors and organizations around the globe.
