Responsible Supply Chains

Shine a light on every link of your supply chain and secure ethical sourcing with our suite of social compliance tools.

Supply Chain Practices That Deserve Respect

Any brand or retailer today must be prepared to answer difficult questions about their supply chain. The questions, ranging from “where do you source your cotton?” to “what have you done to eliminate modern slavery?” will be posed to you by your consumers, NGOs, the media, and even governments. And if you can’t provide satisfactory answers, the repercussions can be anything from consumer boycotts and petitions to high-profile media documentaries and steep fines.

The good news is, we’re here to help. QIMA’s Responsible Supply Chains family of solutions offers everything you need to discover the real state of your supply chain and drive meaningful improvement. We have the experience and credentials to implement supplier audit programs to major international standards (amfori BSCI, SMETA/Sedex, RJC, and more), our own best-in-class protocol, or your in-house code of conduct.
