A Webinar by the United Nations Global Compact: Traceability in Global Supply

Saman Baghestani, Founder, WeMakeChange

Traceability is defined by the International Organization for Standardization as “the ability to identify and trace the history, distribution, location, and application of products, parts, and materials”[1].  Traceability is thus fundamental to any discussion about a company’s level of social responsibility.  Without accurate, traceable information about the full scope of what went into the production of a particular product and bringing it to market, -  i.e. what is happening behind the scenes and within the supply chains - stakeholders cannot properly begin to assess how responsible, ethical, or environmentally-friendly a company really is.   

BASIC Appreciation

Thanks to all of our individual and Affiliate members, the Boston-Area Sustainable Investment Consortium (BASIC) had a wonderful and successful year in 2013!  BASIC member companies worked with the Management Team to host seven educational programs on topics ranging from corporate political spending to human rights abuses in the apparel supply chain BASIC members also joined together for both a Summer and Holiday Social gathering purely to enjoy each other’s company and have fun.
