Has anyone got an example or ideas for what should be included in an ethical trading policy.

 

Thank you.

Simon,

 

About 5 years ago TESCO was opening their USA Fresh & Easy stores and required us to undergo this SMETA ethical audit. I have attached documents.

Thanks Xylough, bit of an old topic, but thanks for the references anyhow.

I've since been involved with a combined SMETA/Walmart audit.

 

Where will it all end...
