The leading voice for human rights in global supply chains

AIM-Progress is a global forum of leading fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies and suppliers collaborating on responsible sourcing.

Members are united by their drive to respect human rights in their supply chains. We’re an inclusive global initiative, supported and sponsored by AIM- European Brands Association.
