MAKING IT BETTER
Our approach to sustainability factory auditing is holistic and empowering in nature. We believe that the monitoring, auditing, and remediation cycle is not just a way to verify compliance but also a powerful tool to facilitate active listening. Supply chain communication involves two-way listening that’s 'bottom-up' and 'top-down.' We've found this dual approach is the most effective in creating real change.
EthoWork strives to enable the correct deployment of your code of conduct by strengthening communication at all levels. Our unique approach will allow you to make a long-term mindset shift and instill self-governance across your supply chain.
