Compliance with social and environmental policies throughout the supply chain is a key challenge for the industry. Third-party audits and certifications are one of the main sources of assurance used by companies. Yet, choosing from the many existing schemes can be difficult for organisations who strive to work with suppliers that provide decent working conditions, respect the environment and align with our industry-approved resolutions.

The webinar will introduce the Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative benchmarking process and its role in the responsible sourcing marketplace. Participants will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the criteria developed by the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) and how they can contribute to the on-going conversations to build trust in the social standards landscape.  


The Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI) is the newest initiative developed by The Consumer Goods Forum in order to help meet the needs of their members, and to support the development of socially and environmentally responsible supply chains around the world. The SSCI is a robust programme which benchmarks and recognises sustainability standards, streamlining benchmarking processes across the Consumer Goods Forum. 

The webinar also showcases how CGF established the foundational criteria for social sustainability and social scheme management with the potential to expand to environmental criteria. CGF shows how companies can use SSCI as part of their due diligence toolkit for responsible sourcing and how new and existing social standards can integrate the expectations of multinational companies from the consumer goods industry.
