What we do

For value chains to be flexible and resilient and deliver benefits to all parties, they need to be transparent and accessible, with easy to understand requirements that do not overburden MSMEs.

Why we do it

Global value chains are restructuring in the wake of the COVID 19 crisis, with a new focus on shortening and diversifying value chains to minimize the risk of disruptions.

How we do it

We drive convergence of sustainability standards and provide information and tools to increase value chain transparency and traceability.
