Consumers, investors and other external stakeholders increasingly
expect companies to respect environ-mental and social interests.
They hold the brand owner responsible for all practices involved in
the making of a product, independently whether this concerns the
brand owner's or a supplier's activities. Thus, any party in the
supply chain not complying with the brand owner's communicated
corporate sustainability standards (e.g. codes of conduct) can
potentially damage reputation or harm customer confidence.
The project seeks to develop a hands-on «sustainability supply chain management approach» to ensure compliance with environmental and social corporate sustainability standards by suppliers and sub-suppliers.
