Targett has been a member of SEDEX Platform since 2010 – the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange, the largest collaborative platform for sharing data on labor standards, health and safety, the environment and business ethics. The Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (Sedex) is a not-for-profit, membership organisation that leads work with buyers and suppliers to deliver improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains. Sedex aims to ease the auditing burden on suppliers through the sharing of audit reports and to drive improvements in supply chain standards. SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) is the audit methodology created by the Sedex membership to give a central agreed audit protocol which can be confidently shared. Created by the Associate Auditor Group(AAG) and involving multi-stakeholder consultation, it draws from practices defined by Sedex members and by the Global Social Compliance Programme.
A SMETA 2-Pillar audit comprises: Labor Standards, Health & Safety, Additional Elements (Management Systems, Entitlement to Work, Subcontracting and Homeworking, Environment (shortened)). SMETA 2-Pillar audit has been developed for auditing against the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code, Local Law, plus the Additional Elements listed above. The guidance can be adopted and tailored to carry out audits against a range of other standards with certain conditions.
A SMETA 4-Pillar audit contains in addition: Environment (extended) – this replaces the Environment (shortened version) detailed above and Business Ethics. SMETA 4-Pillar audits include the additional assessments of Environment and Business Ethics.
