Purchasing Agents And Social Responsibility
The solution addresses the problem:
How do purchasing agents consider social responsibility in selecting suppliers?
When an organization utilizes materials from suppliers in manufacturing, social responsibility should be a consideration of the purchasing agent. For ex, raw materials made in third world country where worker safety is a huge concern can have a negative impact on the organization if they purchase from such suppliers - as doing so essential supports the practice. Other areas of consideration should be the supplier's impact on the environment.
