Atalian Servest has been awarded the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) Corporate Ethical Mark, for a third successive year. The global services provider is one of 59 companies worldwide to achieve the accreditation, joining the likes of the NHS England, John Lewis and Heineken UK.
All 59 companies have taken proactive steps in the last 12 months to safeguard against unethical conduct in procurement and supply management.
The awarding body, CIPS, is a not-for-profit organisation and the world’s largest professional serving procurement and supply institute. The Ethical Procurement and Supply accreditations focus on issues including corruption, fraud, bribery, exploitation, and human rights abuses in supply chains. Organisations involved are facilitated in implementing strategic policy and creating a procurement environment in which best practice is carried out.
To gain the accreditation, businesses must measure and improve their current performance, adopt the CIPS code of ethics and publicly state a commitment to ethical sourcing.
Daniel Dickson, Atalian Servest CEO UK and Ireland, said: “We are incredibly proud to have been awarded the CIPS Corporate Ethical Mark for a third straight year. This achievement is testament to both Atalian Servest’s unwavering commitment to ethical procurement and the hard work of our teams. As a global company, we have a duty to ensure that our colleagues, clients and wider supply chain adhere to the highest possible standards.”
