KPMG launches supplier code of conduct

KPMG launches a code of conduct aimed at suppliers to ensure they follow ethical and environmental principles

KPMG is this week writing to all its
main contract suppliers, asking them to adopt a code of conduct which
established 10 core ethical principles across business conduct, labour
conditions and human rights and the environment.

KPMG has 6000 suppliers and spends more than €370m (?298m) a year to procure
goods and services.

‘KPMG has made huge progress in recent years with respect to embedding
corporate social responsibility (CSR) and diversity in all that we do within the
firm,’ Mark Powderham, KPMG head of procurement, told
SupplyChainStandard.com.

‘Bought-in goods and services are critical to the achievement of our CSR and
diversity objectives and as such the logical next step is to integrate our
suppliers and contractors within our approach. The Supplier Code of Conduct is a
key component of our sustainable procurement programme.’
