Partnering with Sedex to create ethical supply chain management tools

Sedex is a not for profit membership organisation for businesses committed to the continuous improvement of ethical and responsible supply chain practices. Maplecroft worked with Sedex to develop its Supplier Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and risk assessment tools. Both are benchmarked against best practice standards including SA 8000©, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, as well as the Ethical Trading Initiative and other standards relevant to the retail, food and garment sectors. The risk assessment tool leverages a limited selection of Maplecroft country risk indices – with further in-depth information and root cause analysis available via our Global Risks Portfolio.

This included online research, extensive use of survey tools, workshops, direct interviews with customers, suppliers, subcontractors, employees, investors and civil society. Following this review, we worked with our client to systematically address stakeholder concerns.
