Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (Sedex) is the largest collaborative platform for sharing ethical supply chain data. It’s a globally recognized innovative and effective supply chain management solution, helping to reduce risk, protect company reputations and improve supply chain practices.
Through recognized assessment schemes, and a secure online database (Sedex Advance) to store and share audit reports, buyers (A member), buyers/suppliers (AB member) or suppliers (B Member) can initiate the audit and access the reports.
Sedex’s aim is:
- To drive improvements in ethical performance
- Ease the burden on suppliers facing multiple audits, questionnaires and certifications
And they partner with audit firms like BSI to deliver on this.
