About the Sedex 2025 Strategy

Sedex’s aim is to improve the lives of people working in supply chains through the tools and services we provide our members. In 2020, Sedex launched a new five-year strategy, aiming to grow our impact on people via our 60,000 members – from the 33 million people who we currently reach, to 150 million people, by 2025.

Central to this growth and impact is transforming the Sedex platform – to be the leading responsible sourcing platform globally for building ethical supply chains.

In 2021 and 2022 we’re building a Sedex platform with new functionality, embedding automation, supercharging performance, and delivering a next generation experience for our members. This will offer increased flexibility, speed, and value to businesses to effectively respond to changing customer and market demands.
