PSCI Partnerships Strategy

Document Only

PSCI engages with a wide range of organisations and individuals in a variety of partnership arrangements. In the PSCI Strategy 2018-2020, we dedicated a Strategic Objective to building external partnerships (Strategic Objective 3.1). Strengthening our approach to Partnerships will be an important theme over the next two-three years to help us achieve our vision to establish and promote responsible practices that will continuously improve social, health, safety and environmentally sustainable outcomes for member supply chain.

This strategy formalises PSCI's approach to partnerships. It explains what we look for from partners and who we partner with (pages 2-3), the PSCI partnering process (pages 3-6), and how we work with partners once the relationship is established (page 7).

The defence for a company against this liability is to prove that it had adequate procedures in place to prevent bribery. This Guidance from Transparency International UK (TI-UK) is designed to assist companies to comply with the Bribery Act by providing clear, practical advice on good practice anti-bribery systems that in TI-UK's opinion constitute 'adequate procedures' for compliance with the Bribery Act.
