OHSA becomes member of TSC among growing demands from Chinese businesses for greener supply chain and chemicals management.
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, September 5, 2017 – The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) announced today that The Occupational Health & Safety Assistances, Inc, Shanghai joined as their first member from China. OHSA serves over 6,000 international brands and their suppliers in China, many that overlap with suppliers already working with TSC. OHSA is interested in learning how TSC drives members to strive for more sustainable supply chains and bring those learnings back to China.
Fermi Wang, CEO of OHSA, said,
“OHSA is devoted to developing and introducing an information management toolkit for improving SME productivity and sustainability in China. Most of OHSA’s clients are TSC members or in TSC member supply chains. We need to collaborate with TSC members, NGOs, and other stakeholders to address environmental and social sustainability issues and dedicate our efforts and expertise to promote sustainability in China. As a TSC member, OHSA is looking for more close collaboration at a global platform and to contribute more to achieve United Nation 2030 Sustainable Development Goals in China.”
As they face increasing pressure from Chinese consumers, Chinese businesses face a growing demand to have more sustainable supply chains and chemicals management. OHSA will be participating in TSC’s working groups as well as sharing their experience in managing sustainability issues and working with key stakeholders in China.
“We are proud to welcome OHSA as our first member from China. Chinese businesses and consumers are influencing how companies think about more sustainable consumer products all over the world. We have long recognized China’s endeavors to be an ecological and environmental nation. OHSA’s voice and experience will be a great addition to our everyday work to create more sustainable products for the planet,” stated Euan Murray, TSC Chief Executive.
Dr. Kevin Dooley, TSC Chief Scientist and Professor of Supply Chain Management at Arizona State University said, “This is a great opportunity to start connecting supplier factory data to TSC KPIs through OHSA’s on-grounds services”.
