Responsible Sourcing

Better business through responsible sourcing

We build value with our clients by helping them achieve compliance, manage risks, protect their brands and assets and implement lasting, sustainable practices in their operations and across their supply chains.

When armed with supply chain intelligence, our clients are best positioned to make the right commitments, counter external scrutiny, and demonstrate their dedication to responsible practices. 

We work with vanguard companies seeking to change the game and drive the responsible sourcing agenda, as well as with large-scale companies and SMEs looking to do business more responsibly. We are especially committed to supporting SMEs to move along the Better Business Pathway, meaning to be compliant, profitable and sustainable.

We design and deploy responsible sourcing strategies and tools, including those found in our Levin Sources Due Diligence Hub.
