AIM Progress

To enable and promote responsible sourcing practices within the supply chain.

Business Challenge

Major brands gathered into a global forum called AIM Progress*, which seeks to promote responsible sourcing in order to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the supplier’s assessments and to reduce the duplication of the evaluation.
Suppliers are therefore encouraged to share their assessment reports directly with these companies upon request or upload them via a data platform such as SEDEX or others, which provides a secure online data exchange between suppliers and customers.
