Pre-audit checks: GreenGrade performs site visits and conducts complete GAP Analysis, including document review, facility tours, and examination of payroll and production records, written policies and management systems. Our consultancy and visits also cover health and safety procedures as well as wages and working hours’ practices. We carry out audit history checks (if applicable) to identify and track persistent issues. We then match our findings against the SMETA/ETI code of practice as well as buyer specific requirements. We advise about gaps and corrective actions needed and propose an action plan, with a clear timetable for completion.
Root cause analysis: identifying and tracking persistent causes for ethical violations. We provide operational and best practice recommendations, and can follow up implementation on a continuous cycle.
