Ethical procurement has shifted from a ‘nice to have’, or something just for early social and economic equity adopters; to practice that is simply the right thing to do. In the same way that businesses are now focused more than ever on their environmental impact, ethical procurement is an integral part of solid sustainable practices.
As part of a sustainable procurement strategy, ethical sourcing takes net benefits to both the buyer (business) and the global community into consideration. In this ever-increasingly digital world, businesses need to make careful, well-informed decisions when choosing a technology partner. Not only to be ethically conscientious, protect others who may not be able to protect themselves and avoid inadvertently contributing to unacceptable practices, but also to protect their organisation against reputational and operational harm.
