BuyIn is dedicated to responsible sourcing for the Information and Telecommunications (ICT) Industry. With the potential to save up to 2.12 gigatons of CO2 across all business sectors per year by 2030, ICT solutions are a key enabler for a greener and more efficient world. As the largest Procurement Alliance on the market, BuyIn leverages its scale and data to make this as efficient as possible.
BuyIn considers suppliers’ ethical, social and environmental performance as important factors for the vendor selection process. These factors are monitored across the Alliance’s supply chain through the EcoVadis methodology.
As a member of the Joint Audit Cooperation (JAC), BuyIn, together with founding members Deutsche Telekom and Orange, ensures a responsible supply chain. The powerful global initiative counts 13 member operators in 12 countries and covers approximately 2.1 billion connections. JAC members cooperate beyond competition to ensure worldwide suppliers conform to corporate social responsibility (CSR) rules and regulations. So far, more than 300 audits were executed, most of them with tier 1 and 2 suppliers. As of 2015, a stronger focus has been put on conducting more tier 3 supplier audits.
At BuyIn, our commitment is set on three major pillars. They are our commitment to responsible sourcing processes, our mandatory Supplier Code of Conduct and our Ethics Code of Conduct.
