Promoting responsibility in SMEs through supply chain management : Beyond traditional procurement
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) often do not have the time and resources to develop responsible business practices. Big companies to whom SMEs supply, can however assist SMEs in becoming responsible companies.
In this session, examples of how big companies can use different strategies, approaches, and tools in their supply chain management to promote responsibility amongst their SME suppliers will be showcased. Both big companies and SMEs involved in such initiatives will share their experiences and best practices in this regard.
