Recently the Group had received the SEDEX and BSCI awards in the facets of ethical and social responsible performance outside and within the organisation.
The Group is one of the members of SEDEX in empowering sustainable and ethical business practices in global supply chains
For customers, Sedex offers an online system for collecting and analysing information on ethical and responsible business practices in the supply chain. The system enables customer to run reports on a variety of ethical supply chain data and track suppliers’ progress on key issues. In addition, a Risk Assessment tool (developed in partnership with global risk experts Maplecroft) helps companies to identify the likelihood of risk in their supply chain and prioritise resources to effectively manage this risk.
For suppliers, Sedex provides an efficient and cost-effective way of sharing ethical information with multiple customers. This helps to cut down on unnecessary paperwork, saving companies time and money. Suppliers complete oneself assessment questionnaire and can choose to share this with multiple customers on Sedex, along with any other relevant ethical information, such as audit reports, certificates and corrective action plans. By allowing suppliers to share the same data with many customers, Sedex helps reduce the need for multiple audits, allowing both parties to concentrate on making improvements.
