Helen Carter Lead Consultant

Helen Carter is an experienced procurement professional who after 10 years in the profession found a new way of making it even more interesting – namely sustainable procurement.  After working in Direct mail, manufacturing and then Infrastructure construction Helen embarked on a journey to embed the flexible framework and drive more sustainable procurement practices.

During her career at Action Sustainability, she has worked with a wide variety of clients, including Network Rail, TFL, MOJ, RBI, Skanska, Balfour Beatty, United Utilities and too many more to mention.

In addition to sustainable procurement, she also has a focus on Modern Slavery and Human Rights within supply chains, expanding her expertise and becoming AS’s centre of knowledge in the fight to combat modern slavery.  In 2018 she was awarded a Top 100 influencer in this space and more recently she was part of the technical authoring committee and panel for the new British Standard BS25700 – Organisational response to modern slavery. As part of her role, she has worked with her clients to upskill their teams and supply chains as well as helping them and their supply chains implement effective modern slavery and human rights due diligence activity.

Projects have been varied and include developing and delivering training courses, providing procurement and supply chain support, ranging from developing strategies and policies to supplier development plans, PQQ’s, ITT’s, risk assessments and category strategies.
