Social & Ethical Compliance

As a buyer, we are committed to ensure Social Compliance, Process & Product Quality, Safety of employees and Protection of Environment.

This can be demonstrated by enforcing these policies among our suppliers and their sub- contractors, if any.

The degree of implementation of above practices, the overall performance and management commitment is monitored through periodic audits at the supplier facilities. Based on the audit findings, the supplier’s management team needs to identify the root causes of the issues and to implement necessary corrective actions thereby driving the companies on continuous improvement path.

Health & Safety

Needless to say, value for life and health and safety standards are of prime concern. It’s the team that makes a company not machines. We make sure all our suppliers adhere to this mandate.
We recognize the internationally accepted standard of OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series).

Social Compliance

There are various Social Accountability standards (certifiable and non certifiable) which helps companies to effectively implement the social compliance practices. Medusa Source further recognizes these:

  • SA 8000:2014
  • SEDEX – Supplier Ethical Data Exchange
  • SMETA (SEDEX Members Ethical Trade Audit) program
  • WRAP – Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production
  • BSCI – Business Social Compliance Initiative
  • ETI – Ethical Trade Initiative

Environment Sustainability

Considering the current climate change, global warming and depletion of our natural resources it is critical for us to prevent the air, land and water pollution and to preserve the natural resources. Hence Environmental Sustainability is now becoming an obligation rather than a responsibility for organizations.

We recognize the internationally accepted standard ISO 14001:2015 which provides the frame work to establish and to improve company’s environmental management practice.
