Corporate Social Responsibility in Procurement
Many organizations have drafted their corporate social responsibility (CSR) statements. These aspirational objectives require operational integration to ensure responsible business practices that meet internal needs and external expectations. However, many managers charged with the task struggle with the means to achieve these objectives. The low-hanging fruit, such as procuring easily substituted alternative products to replace conventional products, is where a lot of efforts start and stop.
