BSCI

  • Business Social Compliance Initiative
  • BSCI

    BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA). All BSCI participants are also FTA members and share the FTA vision of "Free Trade. Sustainable Trade". To fulfill this vision, BSCI has been given specific governance bodies through which BSCI companies are invited to actively take part, to develop and implement an excellent system for improved working conditions in the global supply chain.

    BSCI Focus areas present particular supply chain issues where close collaboration among BSCI participants, producers, and international, national as well as local stakeholders, can boost the implementation of lasting labour improvements

    BSCI Benefits

    BSCI is an initiative open to retailers, importers and brands engaged in improving working conditions in their global supply chain. The initiative is working to support buying companies to integrate the BSCI Code of Conduct into the heart of their business practices and develop their supply chain while respecting labour rights. In parallel, BSCI also brings direct benefits to the other actors of the supply chain, including producers, stakeholders and ultimately, workers.
