EBCI

The 'Ethical Business Compliance' is our initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in the global supply chain. This initiative is for businesses committed to continuous improvement of the ethical performance of their supply chains.

There are many similar initiatives (certification/approvals) worldwide. These standards are not subject to accreditation by any of National Accreditation Bodies, therefore it was felt more appropriate for CDG to develop its own scheme to match or exceed the requirements of these social standards.

Whilst the CDG scheme 'EBC' is not accredited, CDG does not apply any lower level criteria for the selection of competent auditors and / or specialists. Therefore the integrity of the scheme is assured. We provide an 'EBC' approval certificate after auditing a business against following criteria:-

  • Child labour
  • Forced labour
  • working conditions
  • Working house
  • Proper remuneration
  • No discrimination
  • Disciplinary actions
  • Freedom of association of workers
  • Right to bargain on salary
  • Management commitment
