In the age of the internet, people are more informed than they’ve ever been before and almost all human knowledge is literally at their fingertips. It is no surprise, then, that consumers are more aware and concerned about where products are coming from and how they are being made. As a result, corporate social responsibility has become a necessary business goal in order to safeguard brand reputation.
Ensuring that all goods produced are ethically sourced can be tricky, however, and the processes add yet another layer of complexity to an already multi-tiered and complex supply chain. Everything about the product being produced must be considered, and each material used must be completely traceable back to its origin.
