About IMPA ACT
Responsible Supply Chain Management (RSCM) System is a way to manage risks and effect positive change in a company’s supply chain. It integrates environmental, social and economic considerations in supply chains in a way that promotes the responsibility of all parties involved.
The IMPA ACT programme represents a complete management system for Responsible Supply Chain Management. It is based on the UN Guiding Principles (UNGPs) for business and human rights and the ten universal principles of the UN Global Compact.
Central to the programme is the Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC) which covers suppliers’ impacts on human rights, including core labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. It is intended to represent best practise for the framework and is fully aligned to the UNGPs launched in 2011.
