- Small companies can ask suppliers to meet demands. While small companies
cannot force their suppliers to improve their health, safety and environment conditions
they can still make significant progress through respectful dialogue. It is easier
to make demands if the company has established a long term relationship with the supplier
based on mutual trust.
- Auditing and cooperation. A company can best
make sure that a supplier complies with a Code of Conduct if the supplier is audited.
Audits can be carried out by a third party actor (such as an NGO) that has knowledge
of local conditions including legal requirements. It is also helpful if the buyer
is willing to assist the supplier in how best to meet demands.
responsibility is a process. Improving HSE conditions in a supplier factory is
an on-going process and not an end goal.
