Ethical Procurement

“Corporate Spend has a unique approach to corporate philanthropy: don’t give anything away! Instead, do what you normally do, buy what you normally buy… but from one of CS’s suppliers. As you do, these suppliers will give a portion of their profits to charity. Simple!”

What is ethical and social procurement?

Ethical procurement occurs when environmental sustainability and human rights in labour markets are protected through the supply chain purchasing process. This ensures that the environment is not adversely affected and the whole life cycle of a product is considered. In addition issues such as human trafficking and discrimination against workers on the basis of religion, sexuality and gender is eradicated.

It is estimated that modern slavery generates $150 billion per year in supply chains.
