By joining forces, knowledge and expertise as an Industry Group in the Healthcare sector, I strongly believe that we can make a positive change in our supply chain. Not only do we develop standards and share tools around supplier auditing but we also engage in supplier development by carrying out tailor-made supplier conferences and webinars. Long term, this will lead to better workplace conditions, safe production and a cleaner environment – which benefits us all.
