purchasers get ethics guidanceMarch 2001
A policy on ethical business practices has been issued to the 27,000 worldwide members of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.
The institute, whose members are mainly purchasing managers in large organizations, offers guidelines on what should be expected from suppliers on issues such as transparency, corruption, workplace standards and equal opportunities.
It says it may do further work on sourcing from countries with oppressive regimes or poor human rights records.
