Situ Joins Sedex in Commitment to Social and Environmental Sustainability

Published on Tuesday, November 21st, 2023 by Jo Redman

Situ, the Global Accommodation Agency, is pleased to announce that it has joined Sedex as a member, making a significant stride in the company’s dedication to social and environmental sustainability.

Sedex’s technology and services help companies such as Situ to source and manage their supply chains more responsibly. The platform and solutions provided empower companies with the practical tools, data analysis, and business insights needed to operate ethically, source sustainably, and work with suppliers to protect both people and the environment.

This is very much part of Situ’s drive and undertaking towards being a responsible business, managing both operations and supply chain in a way that safeguards workers, communities, and the environment.

As a starting point, Situ has utilised the Sedex platform to conduct a self-assessment of its core operations, obtaining a ‘low risk’ rating with a commendable score of 2.8/10 (where a lower score indicates lower risk). Moving forward, Situ intends to leverage Sedex’s technology and data tools to conduct a more comprehensive assessment of its global supply chain. This will enable the company to drive positive impacts, analyse key Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) indicators, and provide in-depth reporting for clients.

Becoming a Sedex member significantly bolsters Situ’s established ‘Be More Starfish’ initiative, which encapsulates the company’s promises, actions, and achievements related to ESG matters in one comprehensive framework.  The concept of ‘Starfish’ is based on a parable with the premise that everyone can make a meaningful difference. Situ believes that collective small actions and changes, when amalgamated, lead to substantial positive improvements.

Phil Stapleton, Situ’s Founder and CEO says, “Joining Sedex is a pivotal move in our commitment to our ESG objectives. It signifies our dedication to strengthening ties with our valued accommodation partners who form the bedrock of our established global supply chain. At the same time, it aligns with our goal to offer comprehensive and transparent reporting to our clients, ensuring they have clear insights into the ESG practices and credentials of all our partners.”

“Sedex is delighted to welcome Situ as a member. We welcome their commitment to responsible business and look forward to supporting them to achieve their social and environmental sustainability goals.” Jon Hancock, CEO, Sedex
