Joining Sedex

Why join Sedex?

Production line in Asia

Suppliers are under pressure to provide ethical data to various customers, undergo multiple audits and comply with different codes and standards.

Retailers, consumer brands, governments and NGOs are under constant pressure to monitor and understand their supply chains.

Revelations of unfair or unsafe labour practices, corruption, or environmental negligence in the supply chain can damage a company’s reputation and lead to a loss of revenue.

Suppliers are under pressure to provide ethical data to various customers, undergo multiple audits and comply with different codes and standards.

Duplicating all of this information can be counter-productive, often leading to a loss of productivity and preventing suppliers from concentrating resources on improving standards.

Supply chain management solution

Sedex offers a simple and effective way of managing ethical and responsible practices in your supply chain.

By allowing suppliers to share the same data with many customers, Sedex helps reduce the need for multiple audits, allowing both parties to concentrate on making improvements.
