We’re active members of Sedex, one of the world’s leading ethical trading standards organisations. Their online platform allows us to access up-to-date information about our suppliers and their practices. This means we join the likes of Royal Mail, Tesco, and Waitrose in ensuring that we source responsibly from responsible businesses. Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) is a service offered by Sedex to its members, enabling businesses to ensure they comply with Sedex’s four pillars of Labour, Health and Safety, Environment and Business Ethics. It’s one of the most widely-used ethical audits in the world, and Geiger are proud to be guided by this methodology.
