& Responsible Sourcing
Changing regulations and consumer preferences are forcing companies to confront the social impact of their business. Organisations must demonstrate a responsible approach to labour materials sourcing, and supply chain practices.
In recent years, companies’ social responsibility and responsible sourcing credentials have increasingly entered the spotlight. Consumers are aware of the ethical and social impacts of their purchases, and companies must ensure consumer trust in their sourcing and labour practices.
Bureau Veritas Certification helps you verify, certify and communicate your approach to social responsibility, ethical business practices and responsible materials sourcing. Companies with strong sustainable sourcing and social responsibility credentials can gain a competitive advantage, boost their reputation, and build confidence among clients, investors and consumers.
