amfori Encourages Members to Uphold Responsible Purchasing Practices

07-09-2020

 

A few months ago we shared our guide, ‘Responsible Purchasing Practices in times of COVID-19’. While the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved since then, the importance of upholding responsible purchasing practices is still the same.

We are encouraging amfori members to build positive and long-lasting partnerships with the producers they work with. Although these are challenging times for businesses, by upholding responsible purchasing practices, you can protect the most vulnerable workers in the supply chain.

That’s why we are calling upon businesses to do their utmost to maintain Responsible Purchasing Practices. To support these efforts, we have prepared a guidance for businesses to share and implement.

We must continue to strive for sustainable supply chains which respect human rights, uphold core labour standards and protect the environment.

Please, read these guidelines and share them with your network.
