Global sourcing has created a worldwide marketplace where goods and services are bought and sold. In the quest for economic value, the value of human and environmental resources, privacy rights, data security, intellectual property and other non-economic factors must also be protected.
The Global Sourcing Council (GSC) is a non-profit organization to focus on helping organizations from all sectors, buyers and sellers, achieve their economic goals without sacrificing sustainability. The GSC fosters the exchange of information and a dialogue through:
- Best Practices – the GSC defines and delivers best practices regarding celebrating the intellectual and social capital of the world in a respectful and sustainable manner
- Collaboration – collaboration is central to sustainable outsourcing success. The GSC delivers a wide range of events, activities and webinars to enable its members to network, meet, and share ideas, for growth and to further drive the goals of the GSC
- Education – through the delivery of events, information, and certification, the GSC aims to inform and educate its members on all aspects of sustainable outsourcing processes, issues and trends
- Thought Leadership – the GSC offers an open, unbiased discussion platform for new ideas, controversial issues and general information on socially responsible sourcing in a professional and respectful manner.
