New York City-based Panjiva, an online provider of data on global manufacturers and suppliers, has
added three partnerships to Panjiva Search, its comprehensive web search engine for global trade,
The company has collaborated with Social Accountability International (SAI) – a New York
City-based non-profit organization dedicated to socially responsible manufacturing – to introduce a
new platform that will provide companies with access to detailed information about factories that
have been certified to the Social Accountability 8000 (SA8000) gold standard, SAI’s system for
verifying a company’s social responsibility. Panjiva clients will be able to search specifically
for SA8000-certified factories.
Panjiva has partnered with deKieffer & Horgan, a Washington, D.C.-based international
trade law firm, to offer an online investigative database of global counterfeiters and diverters.
The EDDI database contains profiles of more than one million companies involved in global trade.
Companies the database considers risky will feature a red flag, and users will be able to request
details regarding the designation.
In addition, Panjiva has partnered with the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production
(WRAP) – an independent non-profit corporation that promotes socially responsible apparel and sewn
products manufacturing- to allow Panjiva subscribers to search for WRAP-compliant manufacturers.
