Alliance Will Provide Legal and “Best-Practice” CSR Guidance –
Thereby Assisting Manufacturers, Traders and Service Providers in Improving Social and Environmental Performance.
Intertek's China Center for Labor and Environment, the online CSR knowledge-sharing platform, has allied with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) – a global marketing arm for Hong Kong-based manufacturers, traders and service providers – in order to provide suppliers and manufacturers with CSR capacity-building resources and tools on HKTDC's online marketplace (https://www.hktdc.com/) geared towards improving social and environmental performance at the facility level.
The China Center for Labor and Environment maintains an online (subscription-based) informational platform designed to support suppliers and manufacturers in their effort to build social and environmental capacity at a facility level. Users of the platform save time and money on social and environmental good practice, allowing for greater focus on core business activity.
Specific benefits provided by The China Center include helping suppliers and manufacturers:
- Prepare for clients’ compliance audits with relevant legal and regulatory information – all conveniently organized in brief summaries along with good practice, case studies, and practical answers to FAQs
- Communicate with clients about compliance issues; follow up on required corrective actions
- Get connected with services and expertise - online & on-site consulting and training – in order to expeditiously resolve social and environmental issues
Albert Yeung, China Center Manager, states: “Our alliance with HKTDC represents a good example of the pragmatic value that a vital knowledge-sharing hub such as the China Center for Labor and Environment can offer an association of organizations intent on building social and environmental capacity at the facility level. We are extremely pleased to ally with HKTDC, a crucial platform for Hong-Kong and China-based businesses.”
