How does Sedex help its members?

Sedex helps members to map their supply chain and develop programmes for continuous improvement. Tools offered include things like risk assessments, audits with enhanced capacity building, joint remediation, and reporting tools to ultimately make sustainability business as usual.

Tell us a bit about the new Sedex Advance Programme.

Sedex Advance is the new solution for responsible supply chain management. The needs of our members around the world are changing, with buyers and suppliers facing a growing list of issues. To fulfil these needs and help our members meet future challenges and opportunities we launched Sedex Advance – an evolution in supply chain management. Sedex Advance provides a host of features to help buyers, suppliers and auditors implement their responsible sourcing programmes – all integrated into one easy-to-use platform built using the very latest technology.

Tell us about the new Sedex Stakeholder Forum – how is this helping companies to work together and to better collaborate on supply chain issues?

The Sedex Stakeholder Forum is the new name for the Associate Auditor Group (AAG). The group works to improve best practice guidance on conducting social audits and develops the common audit methodology SMETA. Sedex wanted a name which more accurately reflects the range of stakeholders represented in the group which includes companies and NGOs as well as auditors. SMETA helps reduce duplication of effort in ethical trade auditing, benefiting retailers, consumer brands, and their suppliers.
