I hope that you have enjoyed the article “Purchasing, Social Responsibility, & Animals.” In my opinion, this is one of the more groundbreaking topics I’ve introduced in PurchTips.

This article was based on the interview I recorded with PETA‘s Director of Corporate Affairs for the Purchasing & Supply Management Podcast Series. I highly recommend that you give it a listen because it covers so much more than I had space to summarize in the article.

With all of the hullabaloo about social responsibility, it’s kind of sad that animal welfare has been blatantly ignored by the organizations who claim to champion socially responsible purchasing, but fall woefully short. Oh, well, I’ve personally taken their other shortcomings upon my shoulders before, so I am more than happy to assume responsibility for taking this purchasing and supply management concept to the level it should be as well.

You probably know that one of those organizations has copied from me before, so they’ll likely follow my path on this concept years later, too. But, with animal welfare, at least it will be supporting a positive impact on our world and not just an attempt at self-preservation.
