Responsible sourcing

4 March 2008

In a story today we report that manufacturing firms in the construction industry want to put in place a framework for responsible sourcing standards.

It shows that suppliers in the industry are taking steps to make sure their products are responsible, rather having policies imposed upon them by other buyers.

Would it help you if your suppliers adopted a similar initiative? Or is the system open to abuse from suppliers setting a low responsibility threshold?
