Towards more responsible purchasing practices within global supply chains



Bad planning, late orders, supplier turnover… are all commercially undesirable practices, which increase costs and have negative impacts on quality production and working conditions.

You, as buyers, are the ones who have the main ability to drive change!

You can improve your purchasing practices while boosting CSR within your supply chains… and avoid wasting both money and time!

Suppliers are ready to collaborate more on the issue and consumers are eager to support companies that have more responsible practices.

RESPECT can help you improve stakeholder collaboration and give you the tools you need to have a more positive impact on CSR. The RESPECT approach aims to build the capacity of your suppliers, so that they can improve on the ground, creating better practices at the factory level.
