Regional Ethical Trade Support

Regional-SupportThe fluid nature of modern supply chains often makes it difficult for retailers to provide on-the-ground support for manufacturing sites. We offer a flexible and cost-effective outsourced service to support clients in their main sourcing regions.

Under this arrangement, our regional teams represent the client locally, providing ethical trade management and support through factory visits, assessments and improvement programmes.

Tasks undertaken by regional teams may include:

  • supplier mapping
  • site assessments and risk analysis
  • supplier onboarding
  • follow-up and remediation
  • factory improvements
  • local research and reporting on regional issues
  • workshops and training events
  • monthly reporting of supply chain performance.

We have provided regional ethical trade support to ASOS, FatFace, River Island and Superdry.
