SMETA Audit Confirms Convex Commitment to Ethical Trade

1 Dec 2023 – Convex New Zealand has successfully completed a four-pillar Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) for the fourth time since 2014.

These rigorous three-yearly independent audits play an important role in validating Convex’s commitment to ethical trade and employment practices. The four-pillar audits scrutinise labour standards, health and safety, environmental impact, and business ethics to ensure the company being audited is operating in a responsible and ethical manner.

Convex Managing Director, Owen Embling says, “Our consistent success in the SMETA audit reflects our genuine dedication to ethical values and assures everyone working with us that we are a responsible and ethical business.”

The Convex values audited by SMETA include the company’s commitment to fair labour practices, equal opportunities for all employees, safe working conditions, and environmental stewardship.

“Owen says, “We believe that ethical business is not just a responsibility but a cornerstone of success in today’s marketplace. That’s why we continually strive to reduce our carbon footprint, minimise waste, and produce sustainable products like recyclable pouches and home compostable Econic and Greensack.”

“As a sustainable packaging company, we are proud to lead the way in responsible manufacturing, labour practices and trading.”
