Initiativ for etisk handel

IEHs rapportdatabase

Vi har gjennom mange år bygget kompetanse, nettverk og verktøy som gir mulighet til å kartlegge risiko og identifisere muligheter for forbedring i egen leverandørkjede på en ressurseffektiv måte.

IEHs rapportdatabase gir en god mulighet for å foreta en generell kartlegging av typiske risikoområder. Rapportdatabasen kan enkelt sorteres på land, elementer i etiske retningslinjer, bransje eller andre tema og gjør det svært enkelt å finne relevant informasjon.

Send oss gjerne tips til relevante rapporter.
