Our Mission

The mission of the SSCI is to promote good social and environmental practices in global supply chains by benchmarking and recognising third-party audit programmes and certification schemes.

The initiative will initially focus on social compliance with a view to expanding the scope to environmental compliance.

Our Timeline

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 be taking an iterative approach regarding the development of the initiative. The timeline is therefore subject to change.

Our Governance

Our initiative is currently co-sponsored at the Board level by the CEOs of The J.M. Smucker Company and Sainsbury. They help drive and support our work.

Our Steering Committee has the mission of shaping the agenda and driving the development of the Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative.
