LGC Standards (Middlesex, UK) has been awarded a Responsible Sourcing status by Sedex for its Standards division in Germany. A non-profit membership organization, Sedex is dedicated to improving responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.

“We take great pride in having our Responsible Sourcing status confirmed and are particularly pleased that our customers appreciate our Ethical Trading Initiative,” commented Hans‑Christian Schumacher, Managing Director of LGC’s Standards division.

With members in over 150 countries, Sedex is the largest collaborative platform for sharing ethical supply chain data. The online database allows companies to store, share, and report on information in the four key areas of labour standards, care of the environment, business ethics, and health and safety.

LGC employees across many departments underwent auditing by Sedex, with findings indicating LGC is an ethically run company with good workers rights and a commitment to reduce its burden upon the environment.

By informing customers on the ethical practices of companies, Sedex hopes to reduce risk and improve supply chain practices — simultaneously providing an efficient and cost-effective method of data sharing for companies.
