DATE: 12th March 2020
TIME: 9.30am - 6pm
The International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Initiative for Compliance and Sustainability (ICS) is organizing a joint event to discuss the main issues at stake in the area of compliance and sustainability, due diligence, and cross-cutting challenges for transparency in global value chains.
With ITC’s experience as a United Nations agency dedicated to the promotion of “trade for good” and related sustainability practices in global supply chains, and with ICS’ experience and expertise on sustainability compliance, this event will bring to the table experts from various backgrounds and stakeholders bringing the views of policy-makers, businesses, civil society to a rich and lively debate.
In order to achieve decent work goals, taking into account experience from what has been done for years now, leverage should come from transparency and traceability. Consumers and stakeholders are looking for transparency in order to build trust. Brands are looking for transparency in order to trace their factories' networks and to identify potential risks in their supply chains to tackle them. Traceability is key in order to address compliance and sustainability further down the supply chain. Due diligence may be achieved only by developing the networks along supply chains involving all actors in transparency and traceability goals.
Introduce participants to the notion of transparency and traceability as key areas to consider in order to achieve decent work goals; Increase awareness on relevant tools and methodologies to promote transparency and traceability for addressing due diligence challenges and for implementing such practices in their own sphere of influence; Share experiences and best practices among a variety of stakeholders about the achievement of transparency and traceability in sustainable trade.
This event is free. For registration or questions, please contact : firstname.lastname@example.org.
