The arrival of Hancock, who comes from global technology services company Electrosonic Group, where he was chief executive for three years, comes at an exciting time. Sedex is delivering its transformational five-year strategy, against a backdrop where it is becoming increasingly important for businesses to operate responsibly.

Sedex’s growth plans support a mission to drive organisations to improve the lives of the people they impact.

 Sedex’s 2025 strategy goals are:

  •  Positively impact 150 million people in global supply chains, through membership of 450,000 businesses.
  •  Provide the best technology and tools to support responsible sourcing, through transforming the industry-leading platform, a suite of assessment tools and consulting services.
  • Empower Sedex members to build more ethical supply chains at scale through community, collaboration and good business practices.
  • Make a genuine difference to the lives of the people in global supply chains, by using data and measuring impact to demonstrate that it is delivering on its vision and mission.

Sedex says through its strategy, it aims to provide the best responsible sourcing solutions for its members, helping businesses to operate more ethically, and effectively manage human rights and environmental impacts throughout global supply chains.

Operating responsibly has never been more important, as focus on the environment, social and governance (ESG) and supply chain resilience continues to increase across nations, sectors and stakeholders,” it adds. Technology and data are powerful enablers of positive and genuine change for people and the planet – supporting to facilitate robust, accurate assessment of working conditions around the world.

“I am passionate about the use of technology to improve people’s lives, and so the opportunity to bring together the use of technology and the development of assessment and consulting services to improve the lives of workers is very exciting,” says Hancock.
