In a changing compliance landscape, the task of the standards-setting organisation is particularly challenging. Creating standards that are both fit for purpose and that hold up to industry scrutiny requires a unique set of skills.
TDI works with standards-setting organisations, certifiers, multi-stakeholder groups, and industry associations in a wide range of sectors. We build effective and innovative due diligence, assurance and certification systems that set the environmental, social and governance performance standards for producers and suppliers.
We offer a comprehensive, customised and well-crafted set of services for standard-setting organisations, and we’ll work with you to decide what combination of products is right for your organisation. We can help you with:
Standards development: Creating standard principles, provisions and technical requirements and all associated guidance.
Development of related materials: Development of assurance system elements and associated protocols, claims guidance and logo use, and grievance mechanisms and policies.
Benchmarking and equivalence: Ensuring that your standards harmonize with and don’t unnecessarily duplicate existing sustainability frameworks.
Training: Providing ongoing training on your standard and assurance system to assessors, suppliers and team members.
Data management solutions: Development of online and cloud-based due diligence systems and auditing platforms.
Assheton Carter and the Dragonfly Initiative team have been a significant boost to our company, helping us achieve RJC certification - the first ever mine to have chain of custody certification - enabling our continuing business relationships with luxury brands and jewellers, and building our business through good times and bad. The breadth of knowledge, and quality of deliverables is outstanding, and their willingness to adapt and try new things extraordinarily refreshing. We would not work with anyone else.
