Code of Conduct Audit
Today’s consumers are getting increasingly vigilant. They care about more than just price and quality. They want to be assured that the goods they purchase are manufactured under humane and ethical conditions. With the increasing globalisation of the economy, consumers’ social consciousness and demand for social accountability have immense influence over businesses.
Code of Conduct (COC) inspires organisations to put ethical values and social responsibility on the top of the planning agenda to protect their reputation and brand integrity. It encourages and enables organisations to demonstrate their commitment to enforcing ethical manufacture and supply of goods.
Common areas depicted in COC:
- Child labour
- Forced labour
- Health and safety
- Disciplinary practices
- Working hours and compensation
