Sourcing Playground is working with industry leading standards to verify our members

We make it easier for brands to choose compliant suppliers matching their requirements with globally recognised, industry standards.

Here at Sourcing Playground we are not an auditor or certifier – rather we focus on transparency. Our goal is to empower all of our buyers to make the best choices for their business. Sourcing Playground currently verifies suppliers in a number of ways including:

  • Authenticating email addresses
  • Uploaded documents or links to documented evidence for certifications held, memberships, and policies
  • Displaying each supplier’s reviews & ratings and feedback on past projects

We are proud to announce that we are now working with industry leading certification standards and organisations to help verify our members!

We have teamed up with some of the biggest industry standards within key manufacturing sectors so that we can cross reference and check any claim made by a supplier with the standards themselves to verify their membership, including ethical and sustainable standards.
