Some hardware and software companies are so big that our procurement volume generates too little influence to be able to empower our social and environmental wishes. In such situations, we join forces with industry peers in GeSI so as to collectively expand our influence. KPN’s experience with GeSI is very positive. Together we develop instruments that are publicly available for everyone within and outside the sector. This is possible because we see CSR and human rights as non-competitive issues that need to be taken up jointly.
