Concretely, the project aims to significantly increase the number of India based suppliers and sub-contractors using management systems, and enable them to comply with a range of widely accepted codes of conduct and standards. This can be achieved by addressing the lack of adequate and competent support structures which contribute to developing responsible business practices in large, medium, small and micro enterprises throughout India.
