The Consumer Goods Forum is launching the Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative:SSCI in order to promote good social and environmental practices in global supply chains by benchmarking and recognising third-party audit programmes and certification schemes. In order to show their commitment to providing transparency, they are inviting all stakeholders and interested parties to participate in the public consultation of the SSCI Benchmarking Criteria for social compliance schemes ahead of their official launch later this year.
SSCI is being built by replicating the approach to benchmarking and recognising schemes of the CGF’s Global Food Safety Initiative. In the development process, more than 50 stakeholders were already reached out for feedback and comments. In order to have a broader feedback, SSCI is seeking for further input into their draft Benchmarking Criteria before the finalisation process. As part of the public consultation, the Consumer Goods Forum will offer two in-person stakeholder workshops and webinars to answer any questions. The in-person workshops will take place at the end of September in Europe and North America.
