With a growing number of consumers paying close attention to how their products are sourced, the need for ethical procurement is on the rise.

From selecting the right supplier to the delivery of goods or services to the end consumer, businesses have an obligation to set the right tone for their supply chain operations by ensuring their products and services are delivered using sustainable and responsible methods.

Businesses that are investing their resources in ethical sourcing often do so to:

  • Grow sales
  • Mitigate risks
  • Protect brand image
  • Reduce operational costs
  • Foster a competitive advantage

Over the years, international buyers, suppliers, and consumers have demanded measures that monitor and evaluate ethical sourcing in relation to procurement services. There has been an increased requirement for transparency, and complex systems that are capable of monitoring continuous improvements to supply chains.

Ethical issues in the procurement function do not typically take centre stage, however, their impact can be devastating for businesses and can make for a long road to recovery.
