We live in a “prosumer” world. Consumers utilize their stake in the market to advocate for safer, better quality products and to dictate how those products are made. Scandals connected to forced labor, child labor, pollution, and lack of corporate transparency directly impact the choices consumers make, which create a ripple effect throughout the supply chain. The Ethical Sourcing Standard effectively reduces these negative risks by addressing each of the above issues.
Buyers, suppliers, and subcontractors from all industries should adopt the Ethical Sourcing Standard. In doing so, buyers appeal to the growing consumer base demanding increased social responsibility and a reduced environmental footprint. Suppliers boast documentation proving a high level of commitment to ethical business practices that outshines competitors. Subcontractors reduce the odds of a negative impact to a supplier’s reputation.
The Ethical Sourcing Standard for food harvesting and manufacturing is a tiered certification program that provides a set of benchmarks demonstrating an organization’s commitment to ethical conduct in the following areas:
- Social Management
- Environmental & Occupational Health & Safety Management
- Monitoring and Management Review
- Business Management Principles for Senior Management
During the webinar attendees will learn:
- What is the SQFI Ethical Sourcing Standard 2.0
- Why YOU can’t afford NOT to obtain this certification
- How to get started with the SQFI Ethical Sourcing Program
