- There are sensitivities and corporate relationships that sometimes need to be considered when tendering services; this is something we have worked with a number of our large corporate clients over the last number of years with good success.
- Green procurement is a growing concept where our clients approach to CSR, carbon emissions, ISO 14000 and 26000, etc. play a significant part in the selection of vendor partners.
Acacia offer CSR and/or green supplier questionnaires, audits and/or green procurement advice as part of our upstream and downstream sustainable supply chain initiatives.
