Ethical & Sustainable Procurement
STAR Procurement is committed to adopting ethical values in the way it sources and manages suppliers. STAR is committed to accountability and self-governance, and our staff are trained in ethical procurement.
We are continually building upon this progress, to further embed ethical and sustainable procurement into our activities. This leads to a constant improvement in how STAR addresses sustainability issues and offences such as Modern Slavery within the STAR Councils' supply chains.
In Nov 2018, STAR Procurement was awarded the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply’s Corporate Ethics Mark for our commitment to ethical and sustainable procurement.
The Charterd Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) is the global professional body for procurement and supply personnel. This award will lead to STAR being entered into the CIPS Corporate Ethics Register and it is a sustainable award, requiring STAR to demonstrate annually that it is maintaining its ethical standards.
