From the 1st of January 2017, Broekhof is a participant of the amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). The amfori BSCI is a Supply chain management system that supports companies to drive social compliance and improvements within the factories and farms within their global supply chains. Furthermore is the amfori BSCI an initiative in which our clients wish us to participate in.
With the help of independent social audit companies, Broekhof has an insight into the working conditions at their suppliers sites. As amfori BSCI participant we are also able to offer workshops and training sessions to our suppliers, tackling subjects such as Health & Safety, Capacity Building and Dialogue between Workers and Management.
