Abstract:
The article reveals the essence of such a sphere of entrepreneurial activity as Supply Chain Management. An important aspect of supply management is the implementation of the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which is an integral feature of modern civilized business. The aim of the article is to develop a methodological approach to assessing the level of social responsibility of Supply Chain Management’ company. Based on the previously proposed approaches to assessing the social responsibility of a company, the author proposes an adapted approach to assessing the social responsibility of supply chains’ company. The integral index for SR SCM level assessment combines the following indicator blocks: a responsible producer of goods and services; a responsible business partner, a responsible participant in social and labour relations; a responsible participant in socio-economic and political relations with the state. The article proposes a methodology for assessing socially responsible Supply Chain Management based on the calculation of the integral index, which combines the following indicator blocks: the index of compliance of the supplied raw and other materials, components and accessory parts to the environmental standards; environmental sustainability index for supply chain’s transport support; index of products (services) compliance with international quality standards. Assessment of the companies’ corporate responsibility and their supply chains from their policies’ perspective is possible, if it is based on the implementation of the Key Performance Indicators system, which will allow controlling the level of achievement for corporate responsibility objectives within the framework of the company’s activities.
