Supply Chain Screening through IPE CITI & CATI Platform

NEWAsia provides the service of supporting suppliers’ screening through the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE) Corporate Information Transparency Index (CITI) platform for leading brands. With NEWAsia’s support, our current clients have continuously achieved the best IPE CITI performance in the textile sector from 2017 to 2021 and ranked first throughout the entire industry of 503 brands in 2021. Additionally, suppliers were also provided with relevant Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) training for strengthened PRTRs development and implementation.

Over the past years, traditional CSR audits could not reflect the environmental compliance performance or historical violations/sanctions by the local authorities. Green supply monitoring has been widely adopted by most leading brands to demonstrate the sustainable performance and public image. NEWAsia helps the clients to establish a supplier screening mechanism by screening its suppliers on a monthly basis and issuing detailed explanations on the screening results. 

NEWAsia also supports to verify the latest environmental compliance as well as delisting suppliers from the CITI polluter list through documentation reviews or on-site facilitation. It’s a win-win relationship as NEWAsia not only helps brands and suppliers have a better system and competency in place, but also assists clients in gaining sound environmental performance according to   Chinese laws and regulations.

In addition to IPE and CITI, NEWAsia also screens clients’ performance using the Corporate Climate Action Transparency Index (CATI). By means of CATI, NEWAsia supports clients in gaining comprehensive insight into their corporate climate action performances. The performance evaluation provided assists clients in ultimately taking big steps towards carbon neutrality.
