Minimising risk through responsible sourcing. A handbook for the construction industry (C767D)

This handbook is a practical reference on responsible sourcing for construction and civil engineering projects, within both public and private sectors. It provides the reader with easy to follow and practical information about the impacts associated with the sourcing of products and labour. It is primarily intended for use by category managers, suppliers, and procurement professionals, but will be helpful for many other roles associated with specification and purchasing, and sustainability management.

Much of the handbook is dedicated to a set of ´product sheets’ focusing on the most widely-used products in the industry. These sheets are arranged so that it is easy to understand the potential impacts within a product’s supply chain. Organisations should use this handbook as guidance on the complex social and environmental impacts within the supply chain of products and labour purchased within the industry.
