Towards more responsible purchasing practices within global supply chains


Solutions offered by Respect

RESPECT is a 2-year project that started in late 2011, and is co-financed by the European Union Leonardo Da Vinci programme. The initiative is the joint effort of 8 partners from 5 European countries representing different fields of expertise.

The project aims to develop innovative methodologies and tools to help key stakeholders create change in the way purchasing practices are made in supply chains. RESPECT puts special emphasis on the increasing role of suppliers and empowers them through capacity building and training.

Two pilot countries - Turkey and Bulgaria– were selected to lead assessments and trainings with local suppliers.

RESPECT fosters dialogue between supply chain stakeholders.



  New purchasing practices are created through this process.
