SEDEX – Supplier Ethical Data Exchange.
Supplier Ethical Data Exchange, or SEDEX certification audit, is a system proposed to empower organizations into improving the moral execution of their production network. Organizations that are part of SEDEX utilize its electronic framework, participate in conferences and gatherings to interact with a network of organizations, and receive training. This connected network of organizations working allows for regular updates to take place down the supply chain levels whenever necessary. Along with other organizations, ELC also took the initiative of ensuring high standards of hygiene measures during Covid-19, making their entire facility compliant to the global ethical standards of operations, our aim was to aim for SMETA guidelines as it operates on 4 key areas important for every organization. These are:
1. Health & Safety
2. Labor Standards
4. Business Integrity
These are also called the basis for any organization to be successful and SEDEX acts as a pillar to emphasize these 4 needs and increase the output of every organization, ensuring success in the long run.
