About the programme

The Content

The content has been developed to align with the requirements of the supplier codes of conduct of a number of large organisations.  It also aligns with the requirements of the United Nations Global Compact – an international standard on ethical business practices.

The Purpose

The purpose is to provide an introduction to make participants aware of the material issues for their own companies. The interactive content allows us to cover a lot of content in a short space of time.  The entire course – including assessment – should take between two and three hours to complete.
