As a 4th generation logistics solutions provider, Paxton has taken part in the evolution of the transportation industry over the past 100 years and is committed to upholding the highest ethical standards as the industry continues to change. Holding active memberships in ethics organizations is just one way we ensure we remain current on the ethical conversation.
Paxton International attended the ethics conference held by the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (Sedex) in March, hosted in London. Sedex is an international non-profit organization dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.
The theme of the conference centered on working more cooperatively with associates to simplify supply chain sustainability - with a focus on ethics auditing. While there was some debate over the pros and cons of auditing practices, one thing everyone could agree on was a key factor in ensuring ethical supply chain management is education.
Paxton holds all of its employees and partners, both domestic and abroad, to the highest level of ethical standards in business. At Paxton, we believe in building on our relationships to foster continual improvements through a tested and true system of providing education to act as a catalyst for positive change - coupled with an atmosphere of teamwork.
As a leader in responsible sourcing, Paxton stands firmly behind Sedex to reinforce their mission and increase integrity amongst businesses.
