FTA welcomes Walmart, the largest US retailer, under the new affiliate membership category of the association.
The company has recognised the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) as one of their third-party approved programmes for monitoring supply chain conditions and will work closely with us, using our services to monitor and improve their supply chain performance.
With this move, Walmart joined in September over 20 US based companies already members of FTA and over 2,100 businesses all around the globe working together under BSCI to drive social compliance and improvements within the factories and farms in their global supply chains.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Walmart as one of their approved programmes. This decision recognises our organisation’s competence in driving positive change in value chains. We look forward to supporting them and their business partners in their goal to make the global supply chain more responsible”, said Christian Ewert, FTA Director General.
