Netiquette (and all other SPP platforms) are a non-profit, non-competitive space for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and collaboration of those committed to embedding sustainability in their procurement practices. It is a community for SPP Ambassadors, by SPP Ambassadors and addresses issues highlighted by the community.

Using and engaging on SPP platforms is subject to you being familiar with antitrust issues and how to avoid them. We must refrain from any discussion, activity, or conduct that may infringe any applicable competition law.

Please find below some key rules that apply throughout the event:

  • No discussions about each other’s cost of sales, sales plans, planned sales territories, cost of purchase, trade secrets, discounts, margins, rebates, credit terms, customer quotes, supplier relationships.
  • No discussions about pricing and other purchasing conditions in contracts.
  • No exchange of other commercially sensitive information.
  • No agreement not to compete.
  • Stay within the limits of the agenda of the session.

This applies at all times, not just during the formal session, but also any time we interact.

To remain part of the SPP platforms you must also agree to and abide by the rules of this Netiquette. If you, at any time, do something to contravene our rules, we reserve the right to remove you and/or your content from our platforms.

Stay focussed

The internet is full of great content. To keep the content on our platform focused, we will always keep the right to decide, if your content/contribution will be published on our platform.

Be accepting, constructive, and respectful of the opinions expressed by others

Constructive disagreements are not only allowed, but encouraged if they are handled in a professional manner.

Do not make personal attacks on other community members

This includes arguments, harassment, biased remarks, and defamatory or false comments. If you have a complaint about another ambassador, raise the matter privately and civilly; if this does not work, please contact a member of the SPP Team at

Cross-posting is not permitted

You should select the most appropriate group for your message. Duplicate posts will be deleted.

Show your sources / Do not plagiarize

If you are sharing content that is not yours, provide an attribute to the source. Links, quotes and references are acceptable – copying and pasting entire articles or stories is not allowed.

Post content in English

English is the primary written and spoken language of the other members of your community.

A note for Service Providers and Consultants


We welcome your participation

You have a lot of valuable insights and experience, which will help to reach our ambitious vision. However, there may be some events occasionally that it will not be appropriate for you to attend.

Do not use SPP platforms for self-promotion or as a sales platform

You shall not approach other members or write a post explicitly to recommend any solution or product that your business offers. You will get more positive attention if you show your expertise in a real way. SPP administrators will deal with policy violations on a case-by-case basis to ensure that the community remains a valuable destination for all members. Final decisions made by the SPP community administrators are at their discretion; a statement may not be published.
