The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply Management Awards have named Primark’s Sustainable Cotton Programme as the Winner in its ‘Best Contribution to Corporate Responsibility’ category, at an awards ceremony in London on 15th September. Primark beat five other shortlisted entries to the top spot.
The judges said, “This was an extremely well-thought out and executed entry. It takes its organisation onto a new level and will enhance its reputation significantly.”
This award recognises the work Primark has carried out in partnership with the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA), and agricultural experts CottonConnect, to introduce more sustainable farming methods to female smallholder cotton farmers in Gujarat, India.
