RESPECT STORY e-Booke-book produced by the Respect project.

With civil society raising concern over corporate responsibility practices, investment on CSR policies all along supply chains is becoming the norm.




However, sourcing strategies are too frequently kept apart from responsible practices. Short deadlines, tight prices, incomplete planning and unfavorable payment conditions are often imposed upon suppliers during purchasing negotiations, undermining their aptitude to ensure fair work conditions for their staff. While this is partly due to a lack of real commitment from different actors, it is also often because of the lack of dialogue and understanding between supply chain stakeholders.
