It was awarded to ROSHN following intensive assessment of the training given to ROSHN staff in ethical sourcing and supplier management, alongside ROSHN’s adoption of values, strategy, and practice in-line with CIPS’ Corporate Code of Ethics.

Receiving the CIPS Ethical Mark reflects ROSHN's unwavering commitment to upholding ethical practices within our Commercial processes and activity. It underscores our dedication to transparency, integrity, and the highest standards of professional conduct, marking us out as a Client of Choice. I'd also like to express my personal thanks to CIPS for the recognition given to me at the event. It was an incredible honour to receive the award and reflects the opportunities offered by ROSHN to all its team to be a part of setting new standards, including in the procurement field as all of us in the profession work to establish its vital strategic importance. All of us at ROSHN look forward to continuing to work with CIPS and the wider procurement and supply community to raise the bar across the region,” said McBride.
