Introduction 

Worldwide trading relationships now have a greater opportunity to engage minority organisations in their commercial relationships that develop positive economic and social benefits, this is achieved through conscious and deliberate steps in the procurement and contract development.  This network will bring together people who want to exchange ideas and best practice, and those who want to understand how they can put in place social and sustainable practices in their organisation. 

Purpose
The purpose of this network is to provide its members with insights into new trends and innovations in the development of social and sustainable procurement and contracting.  More emphasis is being placed on our social responsibility and commercial managers are often looking for guidance on how to engage meaningfully and ensure procurement and contracts drive sustainable practices through the life cycle of the commercial relationship.

The objectives will be met by sharing ideas/ best practice, discussing challenges, exploring new directions, developing data and metrics, initiating research and inviting experts to present on key topics related to these topics.

Meetings will be virtual (by phone or webinar) unless in specific cases there is an agreed wish to have physical meetings or workshops to develop specific initiatives.
