We are glad to announce that we can perform BRCGS Ethical Trade and Responsible Sourcing Certifications

Ethical Trade and Responsible Sourcing givesconsumers the reassurance they seek and workers the protection they deserve

The BRCGS Ethical Trading and Responsible Sourcing Standard meets the ever-evolving needs of our clients, and respond to shifts in buyer, regulatory and investor behaviour. It is also the only global standard that provides supply chain confidence and true social compliance.

The Consumer Goods Forum’s (CGF) Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI) has recently completed the benchmarking process of our Ethical Trading and Responsible Sourcing Global Standard and approved its recognition. The BRCGS Global Standard for Ethical Trade and Responsible Sourcing is the first, and therefore only, scheme of its kind to be recognised by SSCI and its member organisations. The SSCI is committed to building trust in the consumer goods industry by recognising programmes that respect key sustainability criteria. It is the benchmark of choice for the consumer goods industry and complements the well-established and respected GFSI-recognised product safety standards.
