In the past, various CSR quality seals have been introduced and compliance with them is regularly audited by the respective clients. Since suppliers are not published for reasons of procurement strategy, supply networks are currently without transparency. In order to check compliance with CSR standards, a large number of audits are carried out at each individual supplier, for which each brand is responsible. The consequences are high audit costs for the brands and a heavy burden on the individual suppliers.
The common objective of the textile brands and the regulatory authorities is to demonstrate compliance with CSR standards throughout the supply chain, down to the individual product. The secondary objective is to reduce the effort and costs of auditing and to create the possibility of sharing audits already carried out with partners.
