Wipro has a multi-pronged approach towards supplier engagement which is represented below.
A significant feature of our engagement is how we try and align our community or CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programs with supplier engagement wherever it is possible. This can address some of the fundamental issues at hand – for example our bridge program in education for children of migrant laborers is an emerging area of engagement for our new infrastructure projects in in Bengaluru.
Some specific requirements like eliminating “conflict minerals” in ICT equipment is difficult to monitor given the complexities in the supply chain. In this context, our program is largely about seeking disclosures from some of our key suppliers.
