This publication introduces procurement professionals to the key concepts behind ethical procurement and provides practical advice for getting started. It not only addresses procurement specifications, but recognises the importance of how a buyer conducts their relationship with suppliers, including contract negotiation.

The guide has a specific focus on procurement across borders, especially when buying from unfamiliar places with weak worker protections, or countries with potentially unfamiliar work cultures. Alongside general discussion of the buyer-supplier relationship, the main body of guidance presents considerations when sourcing abroad within a seven-step procurement cycle. Appendices are included, together with a section containing resources to explore further.
