Global Citizenship

Global citizenship is the ethical and moral obligation to act for the benefit of society locally, globally and virtually.

In this context:

  1. Provide support and add value to society.

  2. Encourage members of the supply chain to support and add value in local, global and virtual communities.

  3. Evaluate business decisions in the context of societal impact.

  4. Encourage supply professionals, and their organizations, to participate in community initiatives, as appropriate.
