Sinis established its partner program to ensure that all our suppliers meet minimum standards in terms of Quality, Social and Environmental responsibility and Labour and Ethics practices. In order to be accepted to the partner program, suppliers need to pass and intensive onsite audit. This is followed up by regular surveillance audits to ensure continued compliance.
After each audit is completed, feedback is given to each supplier in areas which Sinis would like to see improvements, these are mostly relatively minor observations, but it does create a culture of continuous improvement. We also address area such as technical development and technology roadmaps with our supplier so that we can be confident our supply chain remains at the forefront of new technologies.
Our partner program is a collaborative effort and also provides a process for our suppliers to feedback to us about their experiences and any issues they might encounter.
