The Global Impact Sourcing Coalition (GISC) is delighted to host a conversation with procurement leaders on the business benefits and social impacts of Impact Sourcing.
Leading companies are no longer just approaching sustainable procurement to mitigate risk. They are maximizing opportunities and generating business benefits and lasting social impacts. Through the GISC, more than 50 leading companies and organizations have come together to promote and advance wide-scale adoption of Impact Sourcing—an innovative procurement practice that seeks to create economic inclusion and social impacts, such as integrating poor and vulnerable populations into the workforce across global supply chains. Participating companies include Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Bloomberg, and Nielsen.
This practice is not only beneficial for workers and their communities. Through Impact Sourcing, companies gain access to suppliers that have responsible hiring practices and compete on quality, service, and price. Impact Sourcing also creates a more stable supplier workforce and increases social impact and demonstration of corporate citizenship.
