Most brand social compliance or ethical sourcing programs lack critical components needed to meet new Human Rights Due Diligence (mHRDD) laws or the expectations of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). As a result, there is a much needed transition underway to rethink, revamp and migrant traditional programs to meet the higher, more independent bar regulators are setting. Our team has unparalleled experience developing and implementing independent and meaningful brand and retailer programs that add value for fortune 500 companies as well as small brands across a variety of industries. Depending on the profile of your company, we can help to build and/or calibrate your program to ensure its best-in-class and future-fit. Some topics we can support on include.

  • Country risk profiling
  • Restore independence (ask about our Independence and Integrity Diagnostic) 
  • Supplier segmentation strategy (Tier 1 v Tier 2 or 3)
  • Respectful supplier communication
  • Supplier training and capacity building
  • Auditor selection strategy
    • Bribery and integrity management
    • Onsite assessment protocols
    • Reporting templates and quality control
