Sourcing Raw Materials & Due Diligence
Modern society depends on increasingly complex combinations of ‘stuff’, where components and ingredients are sourced from across the world and manufactured in a wide range of countries. Where raw materials come from is increasingly as important as the site labour conditions in which they are used or assembled. SEC has particular experience of introducing and building traceability systems for commodities and the management and use of third party certification in our client’s value chains. We understand the challenges of land disputes and the impact of such discoveries on down-stream users.
SEC will work with your organisation and its supply base to understand and deploy the most appropriate third party certification for your situation. If you find yourself in a land rights related crisis we will advise you on how to build a response team.
