Supply Chain Responsibility
Responsible Solutions experience in Responsible and Ethical Sourcing commenced in late 2008 when we were engaged to assist CELSA Steel on their journey to achieving Eco-Reinforcement Certification (www.eco-reinforcement.org); this is a sector specific scheme compliant with BES6001 for concrete reinforcing bars. In addition to providing advice and support to CELSA in achieving certification we participated in the consultation on the final draft of the standard.
Since then we have continued to build competence and experience on responsible sourcing, including working for British Gypsum during 2011/12 to assist them in achieving the BES6001 Very Good Certification.
Managing a wide range of suppliers each with different risks can be time consuming and ineffective. Having spent a long time working with sustainability data and metrics we understand the pitfalls that organisations fall into. We are developing a working relationship with a number of software providers who can assist you in managing your suppliers. Please get in touch if you wish to discuss this area of your business.
