Todd Chalfin
“As an award winning Impact Sourcing Service Provider we have had the chance to participate in significant customer projects and leading impact sourcing research.

“We were extremely proud and happy to have been nominated for the People;s Choice Award in 2013. Winning it was ultra special since we had to compete with equally great and inspiring initiatives across the globe. GSC gave us a niche platform to have us heard and showcase all the good work that we are doing on the ground especially on women empowerment. We couldn’t have asked for a better audience at the Polish embassy in Oct 2013, rubbing shoulders with eminent scholars and who’s who of the outsourcing industry. This was easily one of the highest points in all our careers at JSW Foundation.”

“3S Awards to Vindhya was just not another award which is a recognition… GS Council starts the relationship after the award and it opened a complete new dimension to Vindhya post the recognition. Boot camp was an enabler which to our knowledge is not done by any other body and it immensely benefitted to us beyond explanation. I wish all the best for the participants and benefit immensely from the company of GS Council.”

July 1, 2015, New York, NY – The Global Sourcing Council (GSC) announces that it has joined the United Nations Global Compact. The Global Compact, www.unglobalcompact.org, is a strategic policy initiative for businesses dedicated to the ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.

“Our participation in the Global Compact underscores GSC’s commitment to promoting sustainable and responsible sourcing solutions around the globe,” said Wanda R. Lopuch, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board of the Global Sourcing Council. Through active participation in the Global Compact, GSC presents voices of the global sourcing community in the historical discussion of the private sourcing sector’s role in the execution of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which are to chart the global development for the next 15 years.

“GSC will work tirelessly to spread information on the 10 Principles of the Global Compact and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) within its global community and encourage our world-wide members to make formal commitments to the Global Compact principles,” said Daniel Lang, the Chair of the GSC GC Committee and the Senior VP at Sutherland Global Services. Our goal is to attract 100 GSC community members to join the 12,000 participants from 145 countries already committed to Global Compact principles and socially responsible sourcing practices, and also to continue to do well by doing good.
