Experiences of SME Reporting in Global Supply Chains

Published by nedivanova
What is the added value of the sustainability
reporting process for SME suppliers in emerging
economies and their multinational buyers?
It does this by examining and sharing experiences
from over a year of the Transparency in the
Supply Chain project, a joint project by the Global
Reporting Initiative (GRI) and Deutsche Gesellschaft
für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH,
which is implementing the PPP-program on behalf
of the German Federal Ministry for Economic
Development and Cooperation (BMZ). The
project works with both Multinational Enterprises
(MNEs) and their Small and Medium Enterprise
(SME) suppliers in global supply chains to explore
how sustainability reporting by SME suppliers
can enhance understanding of sustainability
performance and transparency in the supply chain.
The instruments for building up the necessary
competencies and capacities in SMEs included:
three workshops, individual consultations
between MNEs and SMEs, expert support by GRI,
and specialized regional consultants providing
training based on a specifically designed training
methodology.
