Supplier Engagement

Your challenge

Connecting with each of your suppliers and guiding them through the process of joining Sedex is a key first step in mapping your supply chain. But it requires expertise, time and resources. Engaging with suppliers beyond tier one is particularly challenging. But it is vital, as the biggest social and environmental risks often lie hidden further down the supply chain.
