Over the last decade, the value chain has emerged as one of the most important paradigms for reflection and practice in the field of sustainable development.
Healthy value chain management enables a company to gain recognition for itself and its brand, improve relationships with suppliers or produce more resource-efficient products. Suppliers play a key role in responding to the growing demand for sustainably produced goods and services.
Nurturing healthy value chains means being stronger in terms of future challenges and demands for human rights and sustainability. It also ensures that the company complies with the United Nations Guidelines for Business and Human Rights and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
Optimization of value chains improves the business for a thousand farmers
One of the major tasks Sociability has carried out is strengthening value chains in local economic development for Micro Enterprises Support Programme Trust (MESPT).
Sociability facilitated the formulation of a strategic CSR policy to guide MESPT’s efforts in optimizing diverse value chains on the coast in Kenya. We then helped outline the strategy for coconut valleys in the three coastal districts.
By working with zero-waste circles, one thousand farmers got a better business over a month.
The project has proved to be a valid project, which is now being extended to all of Africa.
