Fair Factories Clearinghouse (FFC) continues to support corporate social responsibility in factories and major supply chains.
The software development organization announced Wednesday that it upgraded its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) software. The new version features four new tools for software intelligence and functionality, while also continuing to help companies track supply chain operations, sourcing, social conditions and environmental compliance in factories.
Existing clients, such as Adidas, Pentland Brands, Puma and VF Corp., will benefit from the update while still receiving support about key performance indicators and working conditions reports.
“It is important to FFC that we continue to meet the needs of our members and provide a technology platform that allows users to keep up with the changing demands of supply chain management and stakeholder expectations,” Peter Burrows, FFC founder and executive director, said. “Our new release offers companies a high level of flexibility and configurability to track what is material for their business and keep up with changing demands.”
For greater field worker productivity, there will be full sport of iOS and Android tablets. A visual display of CSR activity and performance will be possible with a widget dashboard. The second generation system of user configured reports offers companies advanced filtering options and search criteria. Configurable tools will also help create assessment questionnaires on carbon footprint, detection of forced labor, restricted substances and social compliance.
Adidas’ senior director of social and environmental affairs, Selcuk Buyukozer, said that FFC has played an important role in the sportswear giant’s sustainability program. “FFC stands out from the crowd with its committed and dedicated team striving to provide the best solutions for our needs,” he said.
