Responsible procurement

Responsible Procurement is a vital part of Coventry City Council’s procurement process as we recognise, it is essential that we consider goods, works and services that have a minimal impact on the environment, whilst ensuring the moral and ethical treatment of people within the supply chain whilst still securing value for money.

Modern slavery and human trafficking

As a city of 370,000 people, we have a responsibility to help combat Modern Slavery. Coventry City Council supports national objectives to eliminate modern slavery and human trafficking and recognises the significant role the Council must play in both eradicating it and supporting victims.
