By today’s definition, good business governance requires planning for long term viability and taking responsibility for the effects our business decisions make on our global and local environments, communities and economies.
Universities are seen to be leading organisations, operating as best practice institutions in education, research and good governance.
Tertiary institutions also provide the perfect environment and opportunities for students to flex their consumer voices and demand that their institutions meet globally aligned trends and expectations for sustainable goals and outcomes.
Tertiary Access Group members are an important interface between the tertiary students experience on campus and the wider world. TAG members are not only there to engage and support students but to provide vital services that underpin a student’s day to day requirements on campus while maintaining awareness of minimising impacts.
The TAG FLAG - Vendor Profiling Survey
TAG's most successful achievement in supporting good governance and ethical, sustainable procurement is the TAG FLAG - a comprehensive, best practice, vendor profiling tool.
The TAG FLAG profiling survey aims to identify and promote companies that strive for a fair and ethical balance between all aspects of the triple bottom line - People, Planet, Profit and highlight the level of corporate responsibility promoted by TAG contract holders and suppliers. The program also supports the Sustainable Procurement ISO20400 guidelines.
SUPPLIERS - All TAG suppliers are required to register and complete the Vendor Profling Survey.
MEMBERS - Members of TAG can access the Vendor Profiling library for details on suppliers they wish to partner with.
