Monitoring and awareness

CR is included in the personal objectives for our regional heads of procurement and purchasing managers in our major markets. Objectives are aligned with our two main themes of supplier selection and managing supply chain risk. They also cover green electricity purchasing in line with our climate change strategy.

We raise awareness of CR through our regular cross-Group sourcing team activities and Buy-in newsletter, and review progress through our procurement reporting process. This includes quarterly updates from regional procurement teams to the head of Procurement & Commercial Services, and reviews by WPP’s procurement leadership team (our global and regional heads of procurement). Regular updates are also provided to the WPP Board of Directors.
