While encouraging Corporates to instill Social Responsibility and Transparency into their core values, IRFT upholds, intervenes and actively engages with all stakeholders to ensure 'Continuous Improvement' of a 'clean' and 'fair' supply chain.
This commitment is demonstrated by a young and qualified versatile team of IRFT, handholding wherever necessary, building robust relationships with long-term intent, unique mentoring and training skills to build confidence in all stakeholders, and most of all upholding the principles of DECENT WORK that ensures fairness to all stakeholders in the supply chain.
