In recent years, demand for ethically sourced and sustainable products has grown tremendously. Globalisation has caused consumers to become more aware of the affects manufacturing of products has on the people that make them all over the world. But what does Ethical sourcing really mean for a business?
Ethical sourcing is the process of ensuring that the products made are obtained through responsible and sustainable methods. This includes ensuring that the workers who make the products are paid a fair wage and all human rights are met, the factories are clean, and that all social and environmental aspects of production to the workers and the surrounding communities are considered.
Although there are many reasons for an organization to want to ethically produce their products, companies often take the first step to ethically produce their products for the following reasons:
- To reduce their risks and operating costs
- to protect their brand image and meet customer demands in order to grow sales.
It’s no longer okay to just ignore where your materials come from.
More and more, consumers are demanding “safe” products — that is, products obtained from or produced by workers who are treated well, and produced in a way that is sustainable for the environment we all share.
