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.
