Track Record Introduction

Track Record Introduction

December 12, 2019 0 By Kailee Schamberger


As business supply chains
become increasingly global, so does the importance of businesses effectively monitoring their suppliers and products. Stronger legislation has created a more
controlled legal environment that
businesses must operate within, whilst a more discriminating marketplace has boosted the demand for products with positive social and environmental qualities: good labour practice, carbon footprint, natural resource management to name but a few. In this context, businesses with little
vigilance over their supply chain can find themselves on the wrong side of
legislation and shifting market demand, with all the risk to growth and
reputation that these entail. Those businesses who pre-empt these
threats and are ahead of the curve, can mitigate risks and
leverage competitive advantage. Track Record is at forefront of solutions
for customers and suppliers in this rapidly evolving business environment, by providing a reliable and cost-effective
means for companies to gather, assess, monitor and report on the
‘responsible sourcing’ performance
of their products and supply chain. Our tailored services, backed by a
UK based 24/7 customer support centre
provides due diligence systems to demonstrate compliance with both internal corporate policies and legislation, such as the forthcoming
EU Illegal Timber Regulation, REACH and the Lacy Act in the USA. A key part of the process is helping
suppliers along the supply chain understand
exactly what compliance ‘looks like’, providing independent guidance on requirements, including how third party quality programmes
such as ISO, FSC and Fairtrade contribute. This is achieved in a highly efficient and speedy manner by use of Track Record’s online systems. ‘At Track Record, our approach to based on independence, integrity and delivery. We pride ourselves in clear
