Siegwerk joins Sedex

Siegwerk has joined Sedex, a not for profit membership organisation dedicated to driving improvements in global supply chains. Hence Siegwerk has committed itself as a first printing ink manufacturer worldwide to continuously improve ethical performance along the supply chain.

As the largest collaborative platform for sharing ethical supply chain data, Sedex (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) offers suppliers the opportunity to share information with customers on

 

• Labour Standards
• Health & Safety
• Environment
• Business Practices

 

Transparency regarding social and ethical responsibility is core for the organisation that was founded in 2004 and has more than 23,000 members by now. Joining the worldwide biggest association of this kind reflects the holistic approach Siegwerk is representing as a link between supplier and its customers. „This membership will make communication with our customers and suppliers a lot easier and will enable us to radically reduce the ever increasing number of audit formats and questionnaires“, says Jörg-Peter Langhammer, Vice President Global HSE + Sustainability.

As a first step Siegwerk will systematically transfer the data of its biggest sites to the Sedex platform and will link up with other members.
