Empowering you to buy responsibly
Your buying decisions have the power to boost your local economy, make our society fairer, strengthen communities and make our future greener. We are helping you do this by building modern slavery prevention, social value and sustainability into our commercial agreements.
We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals as an authoritative source for responsible buying practice, and use them in the design of procurement strategies, award questions and evaluation processes.
How we can help you
We work closely with organisations such as the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), National Social Value Taskforce, Electronics Watch and the government’s Sustainable Technology Advice and Reporting (STAR) working group to develop and share knowledge and best practice.
Our commercial agreements can help make effective contributions to your carbon net zero objectives in everything from fleet to energy, as well as reducing the use of single use plastics and other forms of landfill waste.
No supply chain is immune from the risk of modern slavery. We adopt a zero tolerance approach and actively manage the risk through extensive risk assessments and due diligence across our commercial agreements.
We strive to ensure that you can secure the maximum possible social, environmental and economic benefits from every pound of public money you spend through our commercial deals.
Knowledge is power
Our commercial experts have hosted a series of webinars covering the hot topics our customers have been asking us about, helping us to empower you to make responsible buying decisions.
Tackling modern slavery in our supply chains
Stamping out modern slavery in supply chains is one of the UK government’s top priorities. We have a key national role to play in order to help public and third sector organisations play their part. Watch our webinar to find out more. You can also view questions and answers from the session.
