Tackling supply chain transparency and modern slavery risk mitigation May 2018

Action Sustainability has joined forces with Ardea International to tackle supply chain transparency and modern slavery risk mitigation.

Both partners will utilise their unique combined expertise in supply chain management and modern slavery risk mitigation to provide  an implementation programme. The programme is designed for organisations to increase supply chain transparency. Significantly, the programme offers a new and unique framework, which is the first to be launched into the market. Furthermore, the programme is applicable to any industry.

The programme covers three key aspects – awareness, evaluation and implementation – aiming to increase supply chain sustainability and resiliency. With an emphasis on modern slavery and labour exploitation, it will provide organisations with a strategy to develop their approach to larger environmental, ethical and human rights issues within their business and supply chains.

Action Sustainability Lead Consultant Helen Carter was pleased about the partnership, “We are excited to bring this initiative to the market with Ardea International. There is a real opportunity for businesses to finally implement best-in-class procurement to tackle serious issues like modern slavery and other human rights breaches.”

Ardea International Director Colleen Theron echoed the enthusiasm, “I am thrilled to be working with Helen and Action Sustainability on this initiative. There are various solutions in the market to tackle supply chain transparency, but our unique combination of legal and commercial expertise will offer a more comprehensive approach to developing responsible business frameworks and managing supply chain complexity.”

The implementation programme is designed to be tailored to support individual business requirements, regardless of how far along a business is on their supply chain transparency journey.
