Established July 2020, IPESS have been involved in promoting suppliers social and environmental responsibilities through institutional capacity building following the ISO 20400:2017 standard guidiance.
Procurement is a powerful instrument for organisations wishing to behave in a responsible way and contribute to sustainable development and to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. By integrating sustainability in procurement policies and practices, including supply chains, organisations can manage risks (including opportunities).
At IPESS we believe that Corporations should work directly with their suppliers’ procurement units on the best ways to disseminate sustainability requirements throughout their supply networks. Increasingly, multinational corporations (MNCs) are pledging to procure the materials and services they need from companies committed to fair labor practices and environmental protections. But the reality is that their suppliers—especially those at low levels of the chain—often violate sustainability standards, exposing MNCs to serious financial and social risks.
