Case study: How our accredited organisations are championing ethical sourcing

Every business is reliant on goods and services but often we cannot be sure of their origins. The further afield they are sourced, the harder that can be.  It is the responsibility of every company to ensure that every product, every service, bears the hallmark of ethical sourcing.

We require businesses to commit to the standards set out in the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code for Sourcing. This process of due diligence ensures that every link in GBC accredited organisations’ supply chains upholds the highest standards of fairness, dignity and human rights. 

We spoke to some of our accredited organisations to explore how they are championing the ethical sourcing component, looking at how these organisations prioritise their suppliers.

We are incredibly proud of the work our accredited organisations do within the ethical sourcing component, serving as powerful testaments to the transformative power of conscious procurement practices. These stories come as a reminder that every purchase has the power to shape a more equitable and sustainable future.
