In an age of transparency demonstrating adherence to sustainability-related regulation, standards, industry or NGO initiatives/certifications and company policy is creating vast new demands for a compliance and assurance function.
Building trust with your customers, stakeholders and supply chains is the prize. The currency of that trust is good information.
Newleaf provides specialist services to assure environmental and ethical compliance in supply chains.
Environmental legal compliance applies to products, supplier organisations as well as your own organisation and covers issues such as packaging, waste, use of chemicals and use of raw materials.
Newleaf provides specialist services to develop supply chains and suppliers that comply with REACh, RoSH and the EU Timber Regulation. We offer full waste compliance services on WEEE and battery reporting and packaging weight reporting to relevant authorities
Ethical compliance applies to products and supplier organisations as well as your own organisation and covers a plethora of complex social, health and safety and employment legislation/voluntary codes.
Newleaf provides specialist services to develop supply chains and suppliers that comply with the Ethical Trade Initiative's base code, SA8000 or retailer-specific ethical policies. More importantly, we also develop supply chains to go beyond basic auditing into more meaningful programmes and supply chain partnerships.
Industry initiatives, NGO-led certification and schemes and bespoke in-house codes and policies of organisations have been developed to build greater trust in supply chains - often in areas where there is a lack of legislation and known bad practices that businesses are keen to eliminate from their supply chains.
Newleaf work with organisations to develop and implement in-house policies in a supply base and streamline our clients business practices to fully operationalise this. Our assurance services include compliance of products to NGO/industry-led schemes and voluntary environmental and ethical codes and standards.
