Improving and Promoting Ethical Procurement

Mace’s UCL New Student Centre team have gone above and beyond the company’s commitment to SEDEX by collaborating with their supply chain to improve and promote ethical procurement by not only signing up their Tier 1 subcontractors to SEDEX but also signing up two high and low risk Tier 2 MEP subcontractors.

SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) platform, is a not-for-profit membership organisation dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices by allowing companies to map their supply chain and assess risks.

Mace team developed heat maps around specific products and services in terms of business ethics, labour standards, health and safety and the environment. MEP and Facades have been identified as the high risk supply chains due to the fractured nature of the material supply chain and the known risks associated with the components used in these materials.

Signing up more and more tier 2 supply chain gives Mace visibility into our indirect supply chain. The UCL NSC are tackling the inherent risks of these materials by successfully signing up Tier 2 supply to Sedex to enable Mace to find the actual risk and begin to minimise them. This in turn allows Mace to develop informed procurement strategies in line with their 2022 Business strategy to achieve responsible procurement standards within 100% of direct procurement and 80% of indirect procurement by 2022.
