Despite the long absence, this piece of recent news from Henry McDonald at the Guardian the exited us so much that we just had to post.
Morrisson’s the supermarket are the first UK based company to sign up to a new scheme called Fair Working Conditions, a very long overdue system set up to provide companies with an independent audit of their suppliers – much like I assume a broader version of FairTrade certification.
Provoked by a recent comment on our Pentland post, once again at Responsable we have been lamenting the inability of the consumer to validate ethical claims made by individual companies, having a sense that surely we would not have to wait too much longer for an independent auditting company to come to the marketplace. Well, maybe, finally, it is here. We’re routing for you FWC, here’s hoping you get many more sign-ups.
