Why are ethics and transparency important?
Vendors that are truly transparent and ethical in their operations are all about making sure that they meet the expectations of their customers.
A key characteristic of the growing embrace of transparency in sustainability governance is an increasing reliance on monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems as a means to enhance accountability for environmentally desirable or harmful behaviors, and thereby to improve sustainability performance.
Transparency and trust combined support sustainable growth. By putting credible social, environmental and ethical data in people's hands, these Vendors help their consumers make more informed – and therefore better – decisions.
