How well do you know your supply chain?

Supply chain mapping is essential to building a more ethical and sustainable value chain. Knowing your supply chain is crucial in understanding where your material is coming from, whether your suppliers comply with your standards and ensuring that all parties are working responsibly.

Without an understanding of your supply chain, can you accurately make a statement on the treatment of animals or workers that go into making your products? Can you accurately comment on any sensitivities that may or may not be present within your supply chain? If your answer to these questions is ‘no’ then you would benefit from mapping your supply chain.
