amfori Extends Suppliers’ Online Learning Programme

04-05-2020

 

In these current challenging times, amfori’s primary focus is to support its members and help them deal with disruptions in their supply chains. 

As a result, amfori is expanding its offer of additional online services to crucial partners in your supply chains: the suppliers or intermediaries.

Why are suppliers crucial to your business? 

Up to 80% of our members’ supply chains are made of indirect sourcing through intermediaries. Suppliers are important actors in cascading amfori values in your supply chains. They are key players and often have a closer link to the factories and speak the local language.

We put out a call to action in February 2019 and launched of the first phase of our suppliers programme. This phase granted access to a limited group of 120 suppliers (nominated by our members) to a broad range of training activities.

We are glad to announce that we will extend this access to all your suppliers in your supply chains.

What will my suppliers learn?

Your suppliers will have access to e-learnings and videos about amfori BSCI and amfori BEPI in an easily-accessible, dedicated learning environment.

They will learn the basics to succeed in implementing amfori BSCI and amfori BEPI. To build on their foundational knowledge, they can also learn more about select topics at the engaged level such as due diligence, audit reports, remediation plans, grievance mechanisms, and risk assessments.

The benefits

The trainings will enable your suppliers to:

  • Gain a better understanding of our services in order to cascade this information along their supply chains
  • Improve the level of social and environmental compliance at their production sites
  • Create an improved working environment at all tiers of the supply chain

Participating suppliers will be able to share their feedback on their learning experiences through a survey. This will help us enhance the training material and adapt it to their needs and expectations.
