Capgemini UK: First signatories to a new code of practice for ethical employment in Supply Chains in the Welsh public sector

 

Capgemini UK were the first signatories of a new Code of Practice for Ethical Employment in Supply Chains in the Welsh public sector, demonstrating our commitment to workers in our supply chains. The code was launched in March by Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government Mark Drakeford to ensure that workers involved in public sector supply chains are treated fairly.

The code requires organisations working with the Welsh public sector to agree 12 commitments which cover six key subjects designed to eliminate modern slavery and support ethical employment practices.  Andy McDonough, Senior Account Executive, Capgemini said:  “At Capgemini, our commitment to high ethical standards and our core values underpin our business practices. We welcome the opportunity to affirm our commitment to human rights and ethical labour practices in our supply chain by being the first to sign up to the Welsh Government’s new Code of Practice on Ethical Employment in Supply Chains.”

Since 2010 Capgemini UK have assessed 100% of our suppliers to ensure compliance with Capgemini UK’s core principles of sustainable procurement.
