Comprehensive global value chain approach

Our collaborative structure is put into practice through our value chain approach.

Using this approach, we ensure the effective involvement of all the key upstream, downstream and support stakeholders who are involved in, influence, or regulate global value chains in the cosmetics, fashion and/or jewellery industries, and which have a concrete opportunity to create market-driven, positive economic incentives that further sustainable development.

RESP’s International Working Groups (IWGs) carry out in-depth field work and research, which help identify and prioritise the most significant issues specific to each value chain as well as understand the role that each stakeholder can play in addressing these issues.  Each IWG develops an action plan to implement activities based on these priority issues.

This approach is critical to understanding where the most significant improvements can be made.
