Mission Statement

The Global Sourcing Council 3 S Awards is a tangible, effective and efficient vehicle of promoting the values of Sustainable and Socially responsible Sourcing practices (3S). The 3 S Awards program is closely aligned with the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 initiative.  The 3S Awards winners are the voices and contributions to the discussion on what is the role of the private sector in executing the SDGs in the next 15 years.

The 3S Awards program aims to:

      • Recognize the exceptional achievements in the global sourcing marketplace of businesses that adhere to the highest standards of ethical, sustainable and socially responsible business practices
      • Provide a working template for the global sourcing sector on the processes and outcomes that sustainable social enterprises require and must deliver. The winners help translate the aspirational goals of the UN’s 17 SDGs into “SMART” action items – Simple, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Tangible.
      • Empower these social enterprises with business, advisory and investment resources help scale up their current enterprises to further multiply their social impact.
