Ethical compliance can affect even the biggest of brands.
The saying “you can’t manage what you can’t measure” is definitely true for supplier compliance. Increasingly, legislation is forcing brands to take responsibility for working conditions throughout their entire manufacturing supply chain. In recent years, laws such as the Modern Slavery Act in the UK and the Californian Transparency in Supply Chains Act in the US, have made companies accountable for the working conditions of workers across the supply chain.
Brands and retailers can spend hundreds of thousands of pounds each year on factory audits. However, if they cannot guarantee their audited factories are the ones that make their garments, isn’t there a risk this money is being wasted?
Segura supply chain management offers brands the ability to track every order every step of the way, giving full transparency through detailed management information & reporting. Specific factory locations can be identified and used to plan audits efficiently. It also ensures that garments and components are sourced in audited and nominated factories. Knowing exactly who every manufacturer and supplier is for any product and component gives the traceability brands require for compliance.
Segura works with brands to map their manufacturing supply chains by working with the brand and their existing partners and suppliers to give the best possible coverage.
Supplier information ranging from factory location to audit data can be captured from multiple sources and stored against individual factories. Completeness and accuracy of factory audits and compliance certificates are simple to trace, and new audits can be booked as required.
Effective order management gives brands a 360° view of their manufacturing supply chain that serves as the basis for any effective ethical sourcing strategy.
With Segura, you can ensure that your compliance budget is money well spent.
