It is available to use for free for businesses that supply to the Stronger Together Consumer Goods Project Sponsors: Aldi, Asda, Co-op, Lidl, M&S, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Selfridges, Tesco and Waitrose & Partners. The improved functionality will make it even easier to use and includes:

- Easy benchmarking allows users to compare scores to others in their sector
- Intuitive navigation provides an improved user experience
- Downloadable reports enable users to share progress internally, share with clients or include within Modern Slavery Statements.
COMING SOON – a Progress Reporting Tool for agri-businesses in South Africa that are involved in the Stronger Together South Africa programme will also be launched in January. Contact us here for more information.
