Audits can be critically important for businesses who wish to ensure they have an ethical supply chain.

Many businesses are diversifying their supply chains and these supply chain shifts can bring new challenges such as labour problems, poor factory conditions or product quality issues.

While a factory audit is good practice before selecting a supplier, you should conduct regular audits on your suppliers to ensure their sourcing and operational policies continually align with your company’s brand image. This will help safeguard compliance with local laws and regulations.

Increasingly, public and private organizations are specifying accredited certification in contracts to ensure traceability of complex supply chains.

Strengthen your brand's standing in ethical compliance with a social audit today.
