The Vodafone Group has announced an overhaul of its supply chain, committing to evaluating suppliers in its bid selection process on the basis of diversity, inclusion and the environment. Starting next month, the company said a supplier's 'purpose' will account for 20 percent of the evaluation criteria for a Request For Quotation (RFQ) to provide Vodafone with products or services. Vodafone pledged to assess suppliers based on their "commitment and performance to diversity & inclusion, the environment and health & safety in categories where it is a risk".
