Suppliers should not be solely motivated by profits. Instead, social equity, work fairness and employee health should be promoted. Suppliers should also work to give back to the community.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Buying from socially responsible suppliers encourages business growth for socially responsible companies instead of irresponsible ones. To be truly socially responsible, organizations must be aware of the secondary social impact they have by buying from socially responsible suppliers.
For New Orleans
The more organizations use socially responsible suppliers, the more socially responsible jobs will exist in the city. In turn, the community will be more productive, happy and healthier.
