What is Sedex?


Sedex is a global organization that facilitates the activities of its members in the global supply chain. Sedex, a non-profit that develops responsible and ethical business practices and improvement processes in the global supply chain, aims to develop ethical trading companies in the supply chain.

The Sedex approach supports buyers and suppliers to better manage social and environmental risks in data sharing and exchange, and to use them correctly and positively with responsible resources.

For this purpose, it provides a number of tools and guidance services and provides trainings to help companies map and manage risks in the supply chain.

Today, more than 60 thousand businesses in more than 150 countries in nearly 40 sectors including food, agriculture, financial services, clothing and apparel, packaging and chemicals are members of Sedex.

One of the biggest challenges companies face in today’s business relationships is managing the risks posed by the complexity of the supply chain. Having too many companies in the supply chain and following them makes it difficult for companies to be aware of the risks that affect their activities.

Therefore, using Sedex tools and services helps companies make informed and correct decisions and improve their performance in the areas of labor rights, health and safety, environment and business ethics.

The Sedex organization has 15 years of expertise in responsible sourcing and works with some of the world’s best-known organizations such as the United Nations and the Ethical Trade Initiative. Sedex believes in the importance of working with the right information and technologies in the future of global trade.

Too many companies today use Sedex to manage their performance on labor rights, health and safety, environment and business ethics. Sedex provides its members with the opportunity to combine many different data, standards and certifications, make informed business decisions and continuously improve their value chains.
