5.0 (1 Vote)


BSCI was launched in 2003 as an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA) in response to the increasing business demand for transparent and improved working conditions in the global supply chain. An overview of the background to BSCI can be found under Why BSCI exists.

We unite over 1,300 companies around one common Code of Conduct and support them in their efforts towards building an ethical supply chain by providing them with a step-by-step development-oriented system, applicable to all sectors and all sourcing countries.

The fundamental goals of BSCI are only achievable through a strong commitment from participants to implement the system. Our work is based on the 11 principles of the BSCI Code of Conduct, which our participants accept upon joining us. These principles ensure a strong, credible and achievable commitment from both ourselves and the participants which will ultimately help us to achieve our goal.
