How it Works

We imagine a world where every business uses every part of its supply chain to engage in ethical, profitable and sustainable sourcing, using ethical and social procurement as a force for good.

Corporate Spend brings together three key groups to enable ethical procurement for social good:

  • Ethical Suppliers
  • Customers

Customers

Our customers are the community of businesses and schools sourcing their procurement from our Accredited Suppliers. Our suppliers direct a percentage of revenue from your purchases to the Corporate Spend fund. You get to decide which charities to support.  No additional budget line is required for charity giving.
