CSI supports companies in establishing sustainable programmes aimed at ensuring social responsibility in the supply chain. We believe the key to success lies in the approach taken to develop and improve both suppliers and manufacturers, as well as to focus on the process and management side.

An active strategy for improving environmental protection is a success factor for any company’s commercial prospects. CSI can assist in evaluating your carbon footprint with the help of WWF’s Low Carbon Manufacturing Programme. Our Environmental Quick Scan and Environmental Management System will help improve the fulfilment of practices which are more respectful to the environment.
Expanding global markets demand higher quality and better value for money. Companies are reacting by scanning their supply chains for cost saving options. CSI offers various practical measures to evaluate and enhance a company's and its manufacturers' productivity and efficiency in order to find out what possible costs can be saved. By building a basis for continuous improvement, an effective company can be attained.
With frequent attacks on a company’s reputation, brand and image, risk assessment strategies are increasingly a driver for sustainable reform. The communication of a sustainability report provides a company with the opportunity to exert its own message with some degree of influence. The demand for increased transparency and accountability will increase the need for improved sustainability reporting and disclosure of information. As a certified training partner for the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), CSI can help organisations understand what their sustainability challenges, opportunities and risks are.
