   Business Challenge

Major brands gathered into a global forum called AIM Progress*, which seeks to promote responsible sourcing in order to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the supplier’s assessments and to reduce the duplication of the evaluation.
Suppliers are therefore encouraged to share their assessment reports directly with these companies upon request or upload them via the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX) platform, which provides a secure online data exchange between suppliers and customers.

Why should I perform supplier audits?
Having a thorough knowledge of suppliers is key to control your supply chain. AIM Progress member companies have high Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aspirations, including responsible sourcing, and need to:
