Sustainable Procurement Policy
FINN Partners was founded on the belief that we would be purpose driven in our work and to help create positive enduring impact in the world. In helping clients achieve those goals, we must ourselves be committed to creating that positive social impact in our own operations.
As part of that commitment, FINN Partners is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNCG). We are committed to operating our business in a manner consistent with these principles. We are also benchmarking ourselves on our environmental, social and governance practices through a third-party evaluation process (Ecovadis).
As a global full-service communications and marketing agency, FINN is committed to responsible sourcing of goods and services, and to working with our vendors and partners through a culture of continuous improvement in reducing environmental impacts and making a positive change.
We expect our suppliers to adhere to the application of law, operate their businesses ethically, and treat people and the environment with respect. To the best of our ability, FINN aims to align with companies that share our values and ambitions to be good global citizens.
FINN is in the process of working with our vendors to track supply chain and create a purchasing approval process for our global offices to ensure the most environmentally friendly and responsible options are selected every time. Our guidelines for our supply chain include:
- Environmental Impact: We encourage our suppliers and vendors to operate responsibility managing and reducing their carbon footprint, waste, and use of natural resources. This includes seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency, conserve water and adhere to best practices in their industry as well increasing their offerings of sustainable products and services. FINN encourages employees to select the most eco-friendly options with vendors whenever possible.
- Labor and Human Rights: Sharing a commitment to human rights and treating their employees with respect. This includes prioritizing the health and safety of employees, fair wages, opportunities for development and the prevention of forced labor, harassment, or discrimination.
- Business Ethics: Adhering to the laws and regulations in the countries and locals where they operate, including taking steps to prevent fraud, bribery, corruption, or conflict of interest.
- Supplier Diversity: Setting a diversity certification policy that prioritizes small and diverse sellers/vendors. We encourage our employees to utilize diverse suppliers when possible, including businesses that are women-owned, minority-owned, indigenous-owned, disabled-owned, veteran-owned or disadvantaged-owned.
