Responsible Sourcing Policy

As Capita continues to expand and diversify both in terms of service and geographical spread, the importance of our purchasing decisions grows. Our responsible sourcing policy sets out the principles and standards we expect from our suppliers, including the way they treat their employees, their business ethics and environmental management. In turn, we commit to be open and fair with our suppliers.

• We spend around £1.3bn every year, purchasing from over 37,000 External businesses

• We take a risk-based approach to managing our supply chain – focusing on the areas that pose the greatest risk/opportunity to our Business, the environment and society

• By working closely with our suppliers, we can identify shared efficiencies, reducing costs for us and our clients

• Our strict procurement policies and processes help us manage risk in our supply chain, ensuring we comply with legislation and maintain our reputation

• We aim for a diverse supplier base to ensure continuity of supply of key products and services

• Our purchasing power gives us the opportunity to influence suppliers to adopt more responsible business practices

• We give smaller suppliers and third sector organisations access to our purchasing business, helping them build their capability to grow and become more sustainable. We aim to avoid overwhelming small businesses with unnecessary assessments and paperwork

• We support local communities by using local suppliers.
