If you are doing your best to integrate sustainable practices, ideally, you want your suppliers to do the same. In this way, you can rely on a more sustainable supply chain for your products that ultimately benefits the full CSR policy of your brand.
Choosing suppliers based on their degree of commitment to sustainability is possible by looking at their certifications, practices and policy. However, if you are short on time, you can check out their certificates to ensure you work with partners that follow a set of responsible guidelines. At Dekkers, we partnered, amongst others, with EcoVadis - a global sustainability rating company. By achieving the gold status, we are in the top 1% of sustainable companies in the advertising and market research industry. One of our ambitions is to roll out this rating system to our entire global logistics network for maximum effectiveness.
