Making a Positive Impact on Organisations, Human Rights, and Communities

A paper about procurement with purpose, by Spend Matters

In this paper, Peter Smith of Spend Matters looks at procurement with a purpose, and how organisations of all types can use spend to drive social, environmental, and economic benefits in the world. While the traditional goals of procurement and supply chain management are still vital, organisations and individuals want to do more, from advancing human rights and eradicating modern slavery to reducing carbon emissions and conserving water resources.

The first section of the paper explains what procurement with a purpose means for various stakeholders and interested parties, and outlines the different areas where it can be effective. The second part lays out five key points that professionals should consider to be effective in achieving their own purpose.
