Auditing, codes of conduct and presenting the ‘business case’ to suppliers is not enough. Actually changing the business practice of suppliers requires more than platitudinous statements of commitment.

In times of financial crisis, a sustainable business model is more important than ever to ensure the necessary social acceptance and “license to operate.”  more[...]
