Today’s retailers and brand manufacturers face complex supply chain management. The GSCP approach benefits these buying companies, enabling them to access best corporate practices in social and environmental compliance, share with peers and embark on the path towards more sustainable supply chains.
Suppliers around the globe are facing audit multiplication and costs while working to meet diverging requirements. By working within the GSCP approach, suppliers improve social and environmental conditions while driving value from auditing processes and enhancing market access.
From auditing bodies, sustainability standards and certification bodies to training and accreditation centres, service providers face the increasing complexity of assessing social and environmental compliance across global supply chains. The GSCP provides robust audit approaches and clear requirements for all.
The GSCP value proposition shows clear benefits for the industry, but also translates benefits for governments, international organisations, NGOs, trade unions, supply chain initiatives and civil society at large. Through the GSCP, stakeholders have the possibility to enter into a constructive dialogue and share their inputs for sustainable supply chains.
