The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) A Critical Perspective
On 30 November 2004 the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) was officially launched. Under the aegis of some of Europe’s largest retailers, this initiative sets out to audit and monitor the social performance of their suppliers world-wide by utilising one common system. Since the BSCI aims to become a major monitoring initiative, which has already attracted several of Europe’s largest retailers, there is a great need for more background information. This document is a first attempt at supplying this essential information.
