Social Compliance

Your challenges:
Workplace conditions are now an important part of a brand's value proposition. Because of this, it is important for companies to operate with the highest standards of business ethics by having a process for managing risks related to supply chain social compliance. 

As businesses expand their manufacturing and sourcing capabilities internationally, they should be aware that supply chain workplace conditions are under greater scrutiny in the countries they wish to enter. Brands and international buyers are demanding more effective measures for evaluating supplier's workplace conditions. Factories are also becoming more proactive in finding ways to benchmark themselves and track progress against competitors and national standards. We have seen a significant shift towards greater transparency and the implementation of sophisticated, yet practical, tools for assessing continuous improvement.

Code of Conduct:
A (CoC) is a set of regulations governing corporate and business practices according to acceptable standards. By implementing a CoC, a company or organization is committed to operate its business with the highest standards of business ethics, which exceed the local law requirement. Each brand and importer can develop their own CoC standard to which vendors are expected to comply. These standards are usually customized to meet international retailer's requirements in Europe and the United States based on International Labor Organization (ILO) requirements. 

Why important CoC for your business?
Companies and organizations that implement an audited CoC are able to ensure and demonstrate their commitment towards socially and environmentally ethical standards throughout the whole supply chain. Implementing a CoC is the first step to devising a future course of action and demonstrates the company's commitment to ethical practices.
