Implementing Codes of Conduct:How Businesses Manage Social Performance in Global Supply Chains
At the start of the 21st century manufacturing is in the midst of a major transformation, with goods moving from factories in Sao Paolo, Ho Chi Minh and Guanzhou to the shelves of stores in New York, Hamburg and Sydney.
