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. These evaluations can be conducted on an individual company's code of conduct or an established standard such as SA8000. CSI is licensed by WRAP to conduct qualifications and accredited by BSCI in offering a social management system. Key aspects inherent to our Applied CSR approach are the intensive work undertaken at the factory level and our individual tailor-made development programmes.

Audits

Provide a comprehensive assessment and analysis of the current minimum social standards of any given facility. Based on basic human rights principles, internationally recognised standards or customer specific codes of conduct, assessments cover all aspects related to minimum social and environmental requirements.

Supplier Pool Monitoring

A cost effective entry level system of identifying and managing general compliance issues in the supply chain. Two approaches to supplier pool monitoring are provided:

Quick Scan: a brief, yet comprehensive and integrated approach to the assessment of social standards and the development potential of the supplier.

Issue Scan: focuses primarily on a set of focus topics that are of current or strategic importance.

Supplier Development Programme (SDP)

Provides long term solutions to supply chain issues through a process of coaching specific suppliers in the management systems necessary for the sustainable implementation of minimum social and legal standards. A SDP is developed with representatives of the factory and varies between basic (6 months) and extensive (12 months). Workshops and training Workshops, training and seminar programmes can be developed on an as-needed-basis for any area of relevance to the implementation of social and environmental minimum standards in the supply chain. Programmes can be developed for one-on-one training and mentoring, as well as seminars for several hundred participants.
