 Sharing our Progress

As we prepare to launch the SSCI, we have developed a timeline to guide the process. Whilst we are working hard to meet the deadlines, we will take an iterative approach regarding the development of the initiative. Therefore, the timeline is subject to change.

The draft SSCI Benchmarking Criteria have been developed by two Technical Working Groups, made up of CGF members, and were consequently approved by the SSCI Steering Committee. In addition, we reached out to more than 50 selected stakeholders for additional feedback and expert comments during the development process.

As part of our commitment to providing transparency, we now invite you to participate in the public consultation of the SSCI Benchmarking Criteria for social compliance schemes ahead of their official launch later this year.

Access the public consultation.

If you would like to stay updated on our progress, please continue to check the below timeline over the coming weeks and months.
