Community of practice on monitoring responsible public purchasing

On behalf of Grant Thornton, Ethics at Work organised and facilitated a community of practice (CoP) on monitoring socially responsible public purchasing. The CoP was an initiative of Rijkswaterstaat, which is part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, and responsible for the design, construction, management and maintenance of the main infrastructure facilities in the Netherlands. The members of the CoP met every month to discuss different social and environmental topics, such as circularity, climate change, supply chain responsibility, diversity and inclusion, and social return.
