Sustainability & Ethical Sourcing
Sustainable Sourcing and Ethical Sourcing are critical to boosting your Brand reputation.
By Sourcing both sustainably and ethically you are ensuring a more stable supply chain and increase risk mitigation.
Procurement Gurus implement key factors such as environmental performance* and economic performance** in all of our sourcing activities.
By sourcing sustainably we are reducing risk to your business by avoiding supply chain issues and any other risks to delivery of service.
Sustainable sourcing is key to protecting your brands reputation. Research from the SIG University in "Sustainability as a Business Strategy" showed that:
- 67% of consumers prefer to work for socially responsible companies.
- 66% of consumers will pay extra for products and services from socially responsible companies.
- 52% of consumers check product packaging to ensure sustainable impact.
*Environmental performance = energy conservation, pollution regulation, carbon footprint, etc.
**Economic performance = financial stability, energy demands, geographic regional stability, etc.
Procurement Gurus fully abide by the international standards against criminal conduct and human rights abuses and ensure full compliance with all sourcing activities.
We ensure that all sourcing activities are carried out in a fair and responsible method taking in to account all factors such as environmental, social impacts and that suppliers are treating their workforce fairly and keeping them safe.
