Following an intense year of focusing on ethical strategies, Servest has secured a place on the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) Corporate Ethical Register.
The inclusion, which saw Servest along with only 16 other companies selected in 2016 was announced at the end of last year.
The CIPS ethical registration is awarded to organisations that demonstrate commitment to reinforcing ethical values across all procurement and supply practices. The code is founded on four pillars: accountability, ethical practice, professionalism and understanding and commitment.
The last 12 months has seen Servest take proactive steps to ensure its entire procurement team has been trained in ethical sourcing supply management.
Jon Stevens, group head of commercial at Servest, said:
“It’s great to see that the team’s dedication to ethical practice has been recognised and celebrated. The procurement team have all worked so hard to make this wonderful achievement possible. Going forward, we will continue to ensure that our practices stay in line with the code guidelines.”
As part of the procurement and supply strategy for 2017, Servest is in the process of implementing a code of ethics that promotes sustainability and responsibility to continue the work that this achievement has recognised.
Servest is the only FM provider from a recent publications top 50 list on the register.
