The business requirements of compliance and brand protection in Quality, Social and Environmental assurance are now very well understood in the business community. However, the implementation and application in organisations are very often within silos of function and outside the daily commercial operations of sourcing, buying, production and supply chain management. This is a lost opportunity to create a good business and provide fantastic growth opportunities for all stakeholders.

We want to help and support International Sourcing organisations and their vendor factories by working with clients in the 4 keys areas of Good Business Growth. Mark K.
