We know that building, maintaining and growing a socially responsible business takes time. The journey can be littered with red tape and procedural annoyances, making it an intimidating task to undertake – especially on your own. We, at WIETA, applaud your aspiration, because we know a socially responsible business improves the lives of everyone in the business, as well as the  communities around it.

To help streamline your journey, we developed a self-paced, online training series, which you can access on your own time in the comfort of your own favourite spot. The training is available to WIETA members, in either English or Afrikaans.

To guide producers on ethical performance areas and how to navigate through the standard in order to develop a more rigorous approach to mitigating ethical risk and developing best practice within the industry.
