SCORE Training-Promoting the capacity of suppliers in global supply chains

SCORE Training: a tool to drive sustainability and productivity.

Multinationals and large national companies are continuously looking for new ways to increase efficiency and productivity, and to improve service and innovate. At the same time, they must also respond to calls from governments, pressure groups and consumers to adopt more responsible and sustainable practices across their supply chains. Ensuring decent work standards and cleaner production practices are central to such demands.

In response, large corporations have demonstrated their commitment to drive change through an auditing regime for suppliers and in their CSR agendas, and have had some success in influencing first tier suppliers, where they have a high degree of leverage. However, it is now widely recognised that audits alone cannot bring about long term change and can leave brands exposed to reputational damage despite their best efforts. That’s where introducing SCORE Training to suppliers can help.
