“At El Puerto de Liverpool we are committed to developing our world-class supply chain, valuing our vendors as business partners, being an engine of social change in order to improve people’s working conditions and quality of life, fostering continuous improvement, protecting the environment and guiding and inspiring others to do the same. The Sedex platform offers a simple and effective way to integrate audit information in order to monitor and accompany our suppliers and their facilities in the social, responsible and ethical practices globally.”
Danny Santander, Director, CATMex
“Kettle Foods Ltd is opposed to modern slavery at any level and recognises the responsibility that we share with our suppliers to tackle hidden labour exploitation. Our commitment to zero tolerance leads us to maintain an active membership with Sedex, which offers us a simple and effective way of managing ethical and responsible practices in supply chains.”
“At Sainsbury’s, we understand our duty to respect human rights. We are committed to identifying vulnerable workers and we do not tolerate any form of slavery or servitude in our business or supply chains. Using Sedex to create supply chain transparency supports us to do this.
In 2019, we collaborated to develop training for firms who accommodate workers in caravan-style accommodation in the UK. This led to the launch of a series of worker accommodation webinars supported by Sedex. Alongside other retailers, we designed questions on accommodation for the latest Sedex Self-Assessment Questionnaire for suppliers, which will influence our KPIs.”
